About This Course:
Job applications are among the most standard of employment-related forms. A good employment application provides employers with the first glimpse into a candidate's skills and qualifications.

Yet, many employers do not regularly take the time to review and update their employment applications. Outdated applications can be ineffective selection tools and can create risk by containing impermissible inquiries into an applicant's background.

This webinar addresses five key areas to enable organizations to develop effective and compliant job applications.

This information is critical for employers so they can ensure compliance in this often overlooked area.
