Webinar | Hiring: First Impressions Matter…and So Does Not Getting Sued – April 7, 2021

By Hoge Fenton | 03.9.2021 | Employment Law

Many HR professionals may be well-versed in current hiring practices, but there are often other employees of the company involved in interviewing candidates who are less knowledgeable or conscientious about what questions you can and cannot ask, on what information you can base hiring decisions, how and when diversity plays a role in the hiring process, and more.

Join us for an engaging discussion, Wednesday, April 7, 2021, from 8:00 to 9:30 a.m. on best practices in hiring, including background checks, when and how employers can consider a candidate’s criminal history, prohibitions in asking about a candidate’s pay history, hiring employees in a remote environment (e.g., during a pandemic), and training interviewers to avoid unlawful and improper questions.

Hoge Fenton’s Employment Law team will demonstrate hiring best practices—as well as some very bad, but common practices—through scenarios and interactive discussion.

Who should attend: HR professionals, business owners, managers, corporate executives, and anyone responsible for hiring or recruiting personnel.

Continuing Education: 1.5 hours of MCLE, HRCI, and SHRM credits will be offered.
