Pitfalls Of Pre-Employment Inquiries: Off-Limit, Illegal And Downright Dangerous Interview Scenarios Every Hiring Manager Should Avoid
|Date / Time:
A recent CareerBuilder survey of 2,100 managers showed that roughly one-third weren’t sure of the legality of questions they were asking during job interviews. That’s alarming, because what are seemingly innocent questions asked to make pleasant, polite conversation with an interviewee could be illegal—and could become the basis for an expensive lawsuit against your organization.
With hiring on the rise, now is the time to give yourself, and your staff—a refresher on the legal do’s and don’ts of pre-employment questions.
Join us when skilled employment attorney Spencer Waldron of Fisher & Phillips will walk you through the current legal issues surrounding all kinds of pre-employment questions, what’s permissible, and most importantly, unlawful to ask.
Attorney Waldron will cover all kinds of conversational forums, ranging from in-person interviews to phone calls and conversations over social media. You’ll leave this one-hour webinar with the confidence of knowing what they should and shouldn’t ask, and how to avoid legal pitfalls along the way.

|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.
