Description:

Learn the top 10 hiring pitfalls to avoid concerning background checks, salary history, drug testing, social media probes, and more in California.

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 in California, such as San Francisco and Los Angeles, 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.

California’s recently expanded Equal Pay Act prohibits employers from relying on prior salary information alone to justify pay disparities based on sex, race or ethnicity, which leads to questions about whether employer should even ask applicants about salary history.

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 California 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)
  • Whether to obtain information on an applicant’s salary history and what to do with salary history information you already have
  • 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 tests don’t violate the Americans with Disabilities Act or the
  • California Fair Employment and Housing 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!

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.
