Finding new employees these days can be a daunting task. As a manager, you are expected to make an informed decision, yet the legal environment is such that you have to watch your step, every step of the way. Every question you ask a candidate is fair game for the potential lawsuit. And other parts of the hiring process can be just as sticky.

This program explains proper hiring procedures that help you select the right applicants while at the same time protecting yourself and your organization from discrimination and legal liability.

You'll learn:

  • The key components of a carefully written job description.
  • How to use the job description as the basis for interviewing and selection.
  • Questions you may-and may not-ask.
  • Special issues raised by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • The value of a matrix for comparing candidates objectively.

Hiring involves a lot more than just the face-to-face interview. This video explains important steps that should be taken ahead of time, and how to focus afterwards on legitimate, non-discriminatory factors during the selection process.
