How to Steer Clear of Accidental Discrimination When Hiring
With every new hire, your objective is to select the most qualified person for the job. Yet you’re also responsible for supporting a fair and diverse workforce – and for upholding anti-discrimination laws by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Whether intentional or not, hiring practices that discriminate against protected applicants could lead to serious legal trouble.
Are you aware of the various federal and state laws that prevent discrimination? Just as important, are you confident your hiring process treats every job seeker equally and fairly?
Attend this webinar for a discussion of the oversights that can hurt your hiring efforts – and what you can say, do and ask each step of the way to avoid accidental discrimination.
You will learn: ..... Major anti-discrimination laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) ..... Language to avoid when advertising and recruiting ..... Checklist of right and wrong interview questions ..... Precautions with background/criminal checks ..... Dos and don’ts of accessing social media accounts.

A Recruiter’s Guide to Giving the Right Offer the First Time
In a National Recruitment Sentiment Study conducted earlier this year by MRI Network, 52% of job candidates listed competitive compensation as the most compelling of 12 possible reasons for turning down an offer.
In this competitive talent landscape, it’s more important than ever to find the right candidates and create compelling compensation packages for new hires. As talent acquisition professionals feel the pinch in this job market when it comes to market pricing and time to fill, it’s time to think differently about pay practices and market compensation ranges in order to land the best candidates.
Join us on October 26th for a webinar that will outline how successful HR professionals are leveraging data to make competitive offers, positioning their organizations to succeed with long-lasting top talent. During this presentation, Alys Scott from Salary.com will share the key benefits of utilizing HR-reported data to create complete, accurate, and updated market pay rates instead of relying solely on free, online data from salary and job aggregators to determine your offers. She will walk through why your ability to close the best candidates quickly really matters as companies find ways to speed the recruiting cycle and land candidates. In this environment where speed and accuracy truly matter, getting all the information right the first time really counts.
At this event, attendees will learn: ..... How on-demand access to accurate salary information helps best-in-class recruiters make the right offer every time ..... How you can improve employee retention by leveraging long-term compensation conversations during the hiring process ..... Why building relationships based on transparency and trust with your candidates is crucial to success – especially when it comes to talking about pay.
