Training Overview

Are you violating hiring laws? Discover how to overcome staffing shortages lawfully.

As organizations strive to gain more team members than they lose during the Great Resignation, many are making recruiting and hiring missteps leading to fines and lawsuits. You must consider the current legal restrictions for ads, applications, interviews, and offers.

Laws have been springing up in different jurisdictions requiring employers to stop including employment application questions about prior criminal history and publish salary expectations. Some contend these questions exclude qualified applicants, while others feel they are essential to maintain workplace security.
