Navigating Potential Landmines - Employment Tests and Selection Procedures

OnDemand Webinar (61 minutes)

Make sure your pre-employment tests are in compliance with employment laws.

Most employers engage in some kind of employment tests in advance of hiring a new employee, whether it's a basic Google search of the candidate's presence on the internet and social media, or a more extended procedure like personality testing. In doing this, the employer may unwittingly be committing a violation of an employment law, whether it is the historic laws like Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, or new laws and initiatives that relate to use of an employee's criminal background. This topic will address common and trending employment tests and selection procedures and help them identify the employment laws that are potentially implicated, and best practices to avoid those violations. This information is critical for employers so they can ensure their basic internet search does not create unnecessary liability and conflict.
