Recruiting & Hiring (from It's the Law™)
Managing Legal Risk Around Recruiting and Hiring
When it comes to recruiting and hiring, there's a lot you need to know as a manager - unless of course you want to spend the next the next couple of years working with me to try to justify your actions to a jury. A variety of state, federal, and local laws impact how you recruit, hire, and promote people. The best way to ensure that everything is on the up and up is to make sure that every decision is based on the person's ability to do the job!

Here are some of the topics that are off limits…
The origin of Names. Age. Birthplace and citizenship. National origin. Gender, marital status, and family. Physical condition or disability. Arrest or criminal record. Religion. And who to contact in case of an emergency. These are a few of the questions and topics to be avoided or handled very carefully – especially when screening and interviewing applicants.
Sometimes the candidate brings up one of these topics, so you can’t avoid it altogether. If they do, let them know it is not something you or your company consider, and steer the interview back on course.
