The legal landscape governing interactions between employers, employees, and potential employees evolves on a yearly basis. Anyone involved in screening, interviewing, and hiring applicants needs to be up to date on these developments—especially hiring managers and internal recruiters, as even seemingly innocuous small talk has the potential to lead to big issues in the hiring process.

This meeting of the Talent Acquisition Knowledge Network will include a presentation and interactive discussion regarding legal pitfalls in the hiring process led by two seasoned employment law attorneys. Focusing on recent developments in employment law, we will teach attendees to avoid:

  • Mistakes in the screening process
  • Non-compliant applications
  • Small talk snafus
  • How to mitigate any of these mistakes if they do happen
