Description Speaker(s)
Hiring has always been about finding a candidate with the right mix of qualifications, experience, and personality. Over time, evaluating each applicant’s potential fit has grown more complex as new hiring tools and techniques have been introduced. Hiring has blossomed into an intricate process fraught with legal and policy implications. (Not to mention the implications of making the wrong hiring decision-- the reason all these complex screening procedures exist in the first place!)

From financial background checks to psychological testing to social media searches, today’s hiring committees need expert guidance on creating a process that conforms to legal standards and instills confidence. During this comprehensive webinar, participants will review relevant legal considerations and how they impact screening procedures, the interview process and decision-making. Participants will also review relevant case studies, discuss policy and legal standards, and participate in polling questions to help paint a picture of current practices among universities.

  • Review interview questions and discuss the legal importance of consistency and documentation through all stages of the hiring process
  • Discover questions that can result in potential lawsuits or violations of ADA standards
  • Discuss of the use of criminal background checks and their effectiveness in assessing future violence or risk
  • Learn about the legality of obtaining credentialing and financial checks through third-party companies
  • Debate the use of psychological testing, addressing relevant legal and ADA standards in both requesting completion of these tests, expertise in terms of scoring, and analysis of results and how best to use them
  • Explore the legality and ethics of asking similar hiring questions and applying the same screening process across the entire applicant pool
