A hiring DVD that serves as the manager's guide to playing by the rules and avoiding legal liability.
Finding new employees can be a daunting task. As a manager, you are expected to make an informed decision, yet the legal environment is such that you constantly have to watch your step. Every question you ask a candidate is fair game for a potential lawsuit. And other parts of the hiring process can be just as sticky.
Explains proper hiring procedures that help you select the right applicants while at the same time protecting yourself and your organization from legal liability.
• How to base the interview and selection on a well-written job description.
• Questions you may—and may not—ask.
• Special issues raised by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
• How to use a matrix for comparing candidates objectively.
Featured in this hiring DVD are important steps that should be taken before the face-to-face interview; eight specific questions that help you get to know the applicant during the interview; and ways to focus on legitimate, non-discriminatory factors during the selection process.
Featuring attorney Linda Walton, Lane Powell Spears Lubersky.
Managers will learn legal hiring practices that will help ensure that the best-suited person gets the job.
