Make sure your hiring practices are in compliance with increased regulation in the hiring process.

Hiring is one of the most important steps in the employment relationship. Ideally, employers want to know as much information as possible about a candidate before making a hiring decision. Unfortunately, this process is also becoming more complex and stressful as an increasing number of jurisdictions have passed laws regulating the hiring process, including banthebox ordinances and prohibitions on salary inquiries, which limit an employers ability to fully vet a candidate. On the flip side, an employer is also expected to exercise as much due care as possible to ensure that it is hiring only highly qualified candidates without regard to any protected category, but with due regard for the employees risk to the safety of others. This topic will take you through some of the most common, complex and often overlooked pitfalls in the hiring process which can expose an employer to liability from several angles, including background checks, banthebox, previous salary inquiries, EEO concerns and negligent hiring claims.
