Many employers do not appreciate the many legal risks inherent in the hiring process. However, from the application through the on-boarding process, there are potential legal pitfalls at every turn. Plus, newly enacted city, state and federal laws have only complicated the matter. 

Join us for an in-depth seminar as we discuss new court decisions and statutes and offer practical advice for hiring efficiently and without risk. You will learn:

  • Appropriate pre- and post-offer inquiries for applicants 
  • Permissible and impermissible uses of background checks (including criminal record and credit history checks)
  • The use of social media in hiring
  • Conducting legal medical and psychological exams of applicants
  • Requirements to accommodate disabled candidates

This is a CLE credit approved program in the state of New York.
