Every time an employer hires an employee, there is a cost in training and retraining. When an employer has to repeat this step over several employees, it can strain manpower and budgets. Hiring and retaining the right candidate for the position is critical to improving productivity and employee morale. In addition to the important business aspects of hiring, the process also exposes employers to possible legal claims. A legal misstep in the hiring process can lead to costly and time-consuming litigation.
Join Jon Hoag and Mike Wong on Wednesday, June 13 at 12:00 PM CT for the latest installment of our Labor & Employment Quarterly Series. Jon and Mike will help employers get it right the first time by teaching them how to effectively hire the right person and minimize threats of litigation.
Specific topics covered include:
- Avoid job posting and employment application pitfalls
- Effective and legal interviewing techniques
- Legal landmines associated with pre-employment screening/background checks
