Hiring Basics webinar
Are you legally hiring the best candidates?
By Tim O’Toole
The Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) will present Hiring Basics on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, at 10:00 AM CDT.
One of the most important responsibilities of managers is to hire new employees. Responsibility for hiring means more than just hiring new employees; it means hiring the right employees for the right positions. At the same time, more and more employers are falling into the legal pitfalls of the hiring process…asking the wrong interview questions, using an outdated application, or worse yet, basing the decision on the wrong criteria.
Are you legally hiring the best candidates? This informative webinar will help contractors prepare and implement policies and procedures to ensure lawful hiring of the right employee for the job. This webinar is designed to help managers understand the fine line between lawful and unlawful discrimination in hiring practices.
