Dangerous Interview Questions: What Will Keep You Out Of (Or Open You Up to) Litigation
|Date / Time:
Many interviewers often end up covering information with applicants which is improper and may result in failure to hire litigation.
This occurs, not because interviewers are acting maliciously or with the intent to discriminate against applicants, but because they are not able to recognize how seemingly innocent questions can elicit improper information. Inconsistent questioning and documentation also contributes to the problem.
Understand and identify the types of questions that you should and should not ask.
This topic is critical for employers that want to ensure their decisions to hire or not hire an applicant can be explained and supported by a process and documentation that a lawful interview took place.

|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.
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.
