Do you know how to safely hire employees? It’s not as simple as you might think, and changes to the regulatory environment are complicating matters. You not only need to have a set of policies, procedures and practices in place, you also need to understand – really understand – the federal and state regulations governing applicant screening and hiring. Do you know what the new EEOC guidance on the use of criminal records to screen potential candidates means? Are you complying with the Fair Credit Reporting Act in your hiring process? Is your applicant tracking system capturing all of the required EEO data? In this episode, we talk about “Safe Hiring”, the elements of a safe hiring plan, the most common questions and concerns employers have about hiring, what candidate information is required, what you can ask for, and what you should avoid, and how to implement a Safe Hiring Program in your company.
