Top 10 Hiring Pitfalls: Legal Risks Of Background Checks, Salary History Requests, Drug Testing, Social Media Snooping, And More

When hiring new workers, it’s important to make sure your company is up-to-date on the latest laws governing what you can and cannot ask prospective hires.

Many cities and states have passed “ban-the-box” laws, which bar an employer from asking an applicant to disclose criminal history record information before a conditional offer of employment is made.

Additionally, some cities and states have passed laws prohibiting employers from asking about salary history. These laws aim to help eliminate unfair pay discrepancies (particularly on the basis of gender), but they create challenges for employers that typically use salary history to help determine current pay.

Other legal issues employers need to watch out for in trying to make an informed decision about a new hire include pre-employment drug testing, social media screening, and using an outside screener to do background checks.

Join us to learn how to navigate this tricky landscape and avoid legal landmines.

You’ll learn:

  • The biggest hiring goofs employers keep making, as illustrated by cases where they ran into legal trouble
  • The right way to go about conducting background checks, including the latest on “ban-the-box” prohibitions
  • What you should disclose to prospective hires about background/credit checks (and how to notify them)
  • How to get information on an applicant’s salary history without running afoul of new legislation barring questions in this area
  • Do’s and don’ts of pre-employment drug tests—when to use them, when to steer clear, and how to ensure that hiring decisions based on drug test results don’t violate the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Whether—and how—you may use social media, such as Facebook, in checking a prospective employee’s background, and what you should never ask applicants for
  • And much more!

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand version, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
