Course Description

When starting the recruiting process, it is important to be aware of certain legal issues in order to minimize risk. Job postings, interview questions, checking references and making job offers all need to be done in a way that meets legal requirements. In the world of social distancing, are you now Googling an applicant before an interview? Do you check out their social media profile? Do you review all recruiter ads before they are posted online when you try to hire someone? Do you even know what to look for to determine if the ad is illegal? 

These actions can expose your employer to a lawsuit. Most business owners and HR professionals do not have legal counsel review recruiting ads, so you must know how to spot an illegal recruiting ad. In the post COVID world, most employers Google an applicant but fail to realize just how this action can cost their employer $100k.

I always learn something from this instructor


The presenter (David Miklas) was very engaging and did a great job at providing real examples and answering a wide range of questions. This was my first webinar with this presenter, but I will definitely be taking more of his courses.
