Session: 601: Negligent Hiring Mock Trial: HR in the Hot Seat
Effectively use the application, interview and background-check processes to avoid risky bad hires.
Negligent hiring is one of the fastest-growing areas of employment litigation. Hiring someone with a criminal record or falsified background can result in workplace violence, lawsuits for negligent hiring, and time wasted recruiting and hiring the wrong person. Hear about cutting-edge issues, such as the use of social networking sites, and the EEOC approach to the use of criminal records and credit reports.
