The process of hiring an employee is a legal minefield that may result in significant liability for the unwary and uneducated. Indeed, as plaintiffs continue to look for new ways to make a quick buck, even the most seasoned executives and human resources personnel can misstep, resulting in six and seven figure judgments against your company.
Companies in the health care industry are particularly susceptible to discrimination and retaliation lawsuits based on a failure to hire or promote. Lawsuits in this industry have centered on every aspect of the hiring process including the job advertisement, the employment application, the interviewing process, the background check, and the ultimate hiring decision. The goal of this presentation is to provide a nuts and bolts of "do's and don'ts" to help your company minimize potential legal liabilities.
