Trouble comes in all shapes and sizes. Any employer who’s ever been targeted for an agency investigation or audit, threatened with fines or penalties, or hit with a lawsuit will agree that an ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure. The steps you take to stay in compliance now can most assuredly help you stay out of serious trouble later.

In their presentation titled “Common pre-hiring missteps and how to avoid them,” McAfee & Taft labor and employment attorneys Kathy Neal and Sharolyn Whiting-Ralston provide guidance for employers to stay in compliance during the pre-hiring process. Their informative presentation covers topics such as:

  • Background checks and the Fair Credit Reporting Act
  • Using social media in hiring
  • Interviewing tips
  • Best practices for the selection process and offer letter
