CDF Webinar: Job Postings and Screening: How to Avoid Liability in the Era of Social Media and Internet Recruiting?
As if there was not already enough confusion and rules governing job postings and applicant screening, social media and the internet have quickly spread into the workplace and complicated the process. The manner in which a business advertises for job openings, the language used, and even the location of the ad, can dramatically affect both the quality of the applicants and the likelihood of lawsuits or administrative agency action being focused on the recruiting process. An errant phone call to a manager about the ad, or a seemingly harmless Google search of an applicant can create significant liability concerns for the company, often unknown until many months later.
It is therefore vitally important for Hiring Managers, Human Resources and in-house legal employees to understand the emerging trends with respect to job posting and screening - and particularly, the good and bad ways to use social media and the internet as job posting and recruiting tools. This live webinar will focus on practical advice for recognizing the current vulnerabilities in your organization, and utilizing available tools to maximize the results of the company's recruiting efforts in a way that minimizes the risks to the organization of lost time, lost resources and unnecessary litigation.
This interactive and engaging webinar will cover how to minimize liability with respect to the job posting itself and how to maximize results in the screening process and minimize liability when notifying applicants of their selection for an interview or job offer.
