Recruiting, interviewing and hiring new employees involve significant legal risks if not handled properly. In fact, California has stricter protections for job applicants than federal laws do — even more so since January 1, 2018.
Are you certain you know what you can ask in an interview and what personal information you can request? No business wants to open itself to a costly discrimination lawsuit.
“California employers should be aware of recent changes to their hiring practices in 2018,” says Erika Frank, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber executive vice president of legal affairs. “For example, asking about an applicant’s prior salary is a thing of the past.”
Join our employment law experts online on March 29 to learn correct steps to take in the hiring process:
