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 the following:

  • Job postings and advertisements
  • Documentation of the hiring process
  • Job applications (and the language you should never use)
  • Job references and background checks
  • Using the internet to research your applicant
  • Interview questions to ask (and not to ask!)
  • New rules regarding criminal convictions
  • How to tell if the applicant is the right "fit" for your company
  • The conditional job offer
  • Offer letters vs. employment agreements
  • Mandatory pre-hire documentation
  • Revoking a job offer
  • Mandatory and recommended new hire documents
  • The introductory period
  • Sick time and health care for new hires
  • When you've hired the wrong person
  • Terminating the bad hire
