Summary:

Recruiters have discovered a treasure trove of information on potential job applicants by using social networking sites and search engines. However, the unrestricted use of Web 2.0 by recruiters, employers, or human resources professionals for hiring is not without substantial risks. Just because it is online does not mean it is true or can legally be used. This session will examine the potential legal landmines and pitfalls utilizing online data, including discrimination issues, the use of legal off-duty conduct, privacy, accuracy and authenticity. In addition, a new guidance issued by the EEOC on April 25, 2013 on the use of criminal records has the potential to change forever how employers recruit and hire in America. This session will cover these and other critical legal issues that can impact your recruiting program. It will also cover practical strategies on how to accomplish your mission, while protecting yourself and your organization from legal action.
