Hiring is on the rebound. After a gloomy period of layoffs and freezes, companies are cautiously adding staff again. So the question is, are your hiring practices up-to-date – and legal?
The hiring landscape has changed in some significant ways.
There are new laws banning common hiring practices. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is itching to outlaw even more and is chomping at the bit to challenge you in court.
Then there is the Internet, which recent legal history indicates adds as much danger as it does advantages.
In short, today you're just as likely to get dragged into court over a hiring decision (or, to be more precise, a decision not to hire someone) as over a firing decision.
How can you navigate this new legal minefield while ensuring you land top candidates?
