EdRecruit 7.0: Building legally-sound hiring processes

Event Date: June 3, 2021

Time: 12:30 – 2:30 PM EST

As organizational and human resource leaders, building legally-sound hiring processes is critically important. Doing so requires awareness of employment-related legislation as well as the creation of clear, well structured selection methods.

This workshop provides concrete tips, tools and strategies to implement immediately into your practice.  Designed from a human resources practitioner –  rather than a lawyer – perspective, it provides concrete tips, tools and strategies to implement immediately into your practice.  You will leave with a deeper understanding of the circumstances and contexts where challenges can emerge. After participating in the webinar, you will be able to:

  • Recognize common legal issues that emerge during the hiring process
  • Identify tools and strategies to mitigate problems and prevent challenges
  • Know how best to respond if you receive a complaint
  • Recognize when seeking legal advice is warranted

Participants will receive our eBook, which will include checklists and tools to support you in your hiring efforts.
