You only get one chance to make a first impression, so you want to make sure that your company avoids unnecessary missteps when recruiting and hiring employees.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 21, 2018
If you have employees or advise companies with employees, this webinar series is for you! No employer—whether large, medium or small—is immune from the reach of federal, state and/or local employment laws and regulations. Now, more than ever, employers should consider taking a proactive approach to auditing their employment practices and policies so that they can better respond when issues arise. This webinar series approaches the employer-employee relationship from beginning to end, with programs covering the most important steps along the way, including hiring and onboarding, policy and procedure development and training, wage and hour compliance, accommodating disabled employees, conducting investigations and considerations associated with ending the relationship.
The first episode of the series, Welcome to the Team! Recruiting and Hiring, Including Restrictive Covenants, airs on January 23rd at 3:00 PM CST (Register Here) and features Moderator Aaron Gelb of Conn Maciel Carey LLP. He is joined by Allison L. Feldstein of Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr LLP, Jennifer Marszalek of Havas Chicago Village/Havas, and David N. Michael of Gould & Ratner.
You only get one chance to make a first impression, so you want to make sure that your company avoids unnecessary missteps when recruiting and hiring employees. Understanding what you can and cannot say during interviews and how to respond when a candidate volunteers information that may be considered “off limits” is essential. At the same time, there are a host of laws being passed throughout the country that address when and what sort of information you can request from applicants regarding their criminal and financial histories. In the event you decide to protect your organization by requiring certain employees to sign some type of restrictive covenants—non-competition, non-solicitation and/or non-disclosure—there are a host of legal and practical issues to consider. This webinar explores these and other issues so that you can be confident, going forward, that you are starting off on the right foot—legally, at least—when you hire new employees.
