Seminar Description


Building a quality workforce begins with effective (and lawful) hiring techniques. How can you tell if your applicant is the best person for the job? What documentation is required or permitted in the hiring process? Employers must be aware of hiring restrictions and requirements to avoid discrimination claims from applicants and to develop an effective employment relationship from the outset.

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler will discuss the effective and lawful hiring of California employees. Topics covered will include:

  • Job postings and advertisements
  • Documentation of the hiring process
  • Job applications (and the language you should never use)
  • Job references
  • Using the internet to research your applicant
  • Interview questions to ask (and not to ask!)
  • How to tell if the applicant is the right "fit" for your company
  • Making an offer
  • The offer letter and other pre-hire documents
  • New rules regarding criminal convictions
  • When you've hired the wrong person

If you reserve a spot and then later find that you are unable to attend, please inform us in advance so that we may offer your seat to someone else.
