Building (or re-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? What do you do when the new employee arrives at your workplace? Employers must be aware of hiring restrictions and requirements to avoid violating California's hiring laws, deter discrimination claims from applicants, and 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 will include the following:

  • Recruiting after pandemic losses
  • Job postings and advertisements
  • Documentation of the hiring process
  • Job applications
  • Job references and background checks
  • Using the internet to research your applicant
  • Interview questions to ask (and not to ask!)
  • Background checks and criminal convictions
  • How to tell if the applicant is the right "fit" for your company
  • The conditional job offer
  • Offer letters and employment agreements
  • Mandatory pre-hire documentation
  • Revoking a job offer
  • The employee's first day
  • Mandatory and recommended new hire documents
  • The introductory period
  • When you've hired the wrong person
  • Terminating the bad hire
