Getting multiple perspectives on tough recruiting-related issues would typically take weeks or months of research. Even if you could find an answer from a legal case, it would only give you one data point. The depth and breadth of the questions and corresponding perspectives from these debates is truly impressive.
Larkspur, CA (PRWEB) April 24, 2007
Accolo, Inc. today announced the debut of a comprehensive reference site for recruiting-related discrimination questions and answers (http://www.accolo.com/EEOC_OFCCP/). The site combines information from three live panel debates with the EEOC, OFCCP, litigators and industry experts about discrimination in the recruiting process. In addition to debate transcriptions, the site also includes answers to follow-up questions posed by audience members not debated during the live events.
These landmark Webinar debates took place on May 4, November 14, and December 5, 2006. Legal, hiring, recruiting and human resources professionals now have a valuable resource to help avoid common pitfalls while recruiting in today's complex environment. This site incorporates several months of data gathered from the debates and following discussions, and is intended to address many of the most common questions.
"Some of the most difficult and controversial issues related to discrimination in the recruiting process are not easy to understand or resolve," says Joan Ehrlich, San Francisco District Director for the EEOC. "By documenting these open debates, much progress has been made to clarify the issues. Where else can you find answers to questions like 'In what situations do you believe race or age would be a bona fide occupational qualification?' This is a wonderful resource."
John Montgomery, Partner with Montgomery and Hansen in Menlo Park, California (http://www.montgomerylawgroup.com), points out "Getting multiple perspectives on tough recruiting-related issues would typically take weeks or months of research. Even if you could find an answer from a legal case, it would only give you one data point. The depth and breadth of the questions and corresponding perspectives from these debates is truly impressive." He added, "I applaud Accolo and all those involved."
"Greg Hammond, EVP & General Counsel for TriNet Group, Inc., an outsourced-HR provider (http://www.trinet.com), emphasized that "the key benefit of the debates and their publication is that it illustrates the breath and depth of the challenges of the recruiting process in a world where informational transactions are becoming frictionless. The transparency and accessibility of both personal and professional information blur the lines between permissible and impermissible use. Accolo and its partners, as well as the guests who truly drove some of the most pointed debate, are to be commended for making this important and dynamic resource available to the public."
