This webinar covers five reasons hiring practices may be ineffective or illegal or both. We will talk about “warm body” hiring and how to avoid it. We will discuss the importance of understanding the job and how well the candidate matches the requirements. We will discuss how to interview better and how to assess the candidate. The importance of background checks and their proper use will be discussed to avoid illegal decisions. The importance of following proper immigration documentation procedures and how you can run afoul of these regulations, including keeping newly hired employees that should have been fired. We will discuss how to avoid unintentional discrimination by testing for “adverse impact”. Finally, we will discuss why you should not avoid the “onboarding” process.

Employees are getting harder and harder to find at the same time the government is creating stricter and more onerous regulations. Engaging in hiring practices that are ineffective is expensive and wasteful. Engaging in hiring practices that are illegal is also expensive and damaging. Therefore it is important to understand what these five practices are that either ineffective or illegal or both.
