Duration: 60 Minutes

Guidance for Hiring Managers
Product ID: 501439
Objectives of the Presentation
  • Why a list of 'illegal interview questions' to avoid is not sufficient
  • What the protected characteristics are and why they are off-limits during the hiring process
  • Common hiring process mistakes (to avoid) related to protected characteristics
  • Examples of less-than-obvious off-limits topics based on real-world situations
  • Best practices to avoid EEO-related risks and liability related to the hiring process
Why Should you Attend
Attendees will deepen their knowledge of off-limits topics for the hiring process beyond what is found on the often-used lists of illegal interview questions commonly used when "training" people on how to hire. The objective is for participants to develop (and be able to apply!) a working knowledge of what they cannot try to learn about applicants - and cannot use - in the hiring process in order to stay in compliance with equal employment opportunity requirements.
