This training program will offer an overview of anti-discrimination laws and affirmative action issued for federal contractors; illegal and ill-advised interview questions; pre-employment tests (skills, strength, medical tests) use of social media, criminal background checks; and more.
Brief Overview of Federal Anti-Discrimination Laws
You need to hire new employees—and you’ve heard the war stories. One company was sued because the interviewer asked the wrong questions. Another got into trouble because of the pre-employment test it used, and yet another received a charge from the EEOC relating to its use of criminal background checks. These are just a few of the traps for the unwary employer during the pre-employment screening process. The hiring process is fraught with many hidden pitfalls. What can you do?
If you are looking to hire quality candidates and ensure that your process is on track, then this webinar is for you.
Janette Levey Frisch has over 20 years of legal experience, more than 10 of which she has spent in Employment Law. It was during her tenure as sole in-house counsel for a mid-size staffing company headquartered in Central New Jersey, with operations all over the continental US, that she truly developed her passion for Employment Law. Janette operates under this core belief: It is possible, and it is in an employer’s best interest, to proactively solve workforce challenges before they become problems before they result in lawsuits or steep fines caused by government audits. She works with employers on most employment law issues, acting as the Employer’s Legal Wellness Professional — to ensure that employers are in the best position possible to avoid litigation, audits, employee relations problems, and the attendant, often exorbitant costs.
Janette authors the firm’s weekly blog, where you can read each week, in plain English (not legalese) about issues impacting employers today. She has written articles on many different employment law issues for many publications, including EEO Insight, Staffing Industry Review, @Law, and Chief Legal Officer. She has also spoken and trained on topics, such as Criminal Background Checks in the hiring process, Joint Employment, Severance Arrangements, Pre-Employment Screening among many and much more. She serves on the Workplace Violence Prevention Institute, a multi-disciplinary task force, dedicated to providing, holistic, proactive and cutting-edge solutions and resources for employers committed to ensuring a safe workplace.
