Job interviews present a minefield of legal problems. One wrong question could spark a discrimination lawsuit. That's why you should never "wing it" during interviews. Instead, create a list of interview questions and make sure every question asks for job-related information that will help in the selection process.
Can we ban personal cell phones at work? Many of our employees spend work time on personal calls and text messaging. Can we require that they leave their cell phones in their cars or at home?
We offered a job to a woman who was great until she signed all her paperwork and now she is being challenging and difficult and she hasn’t even started work yet. Can we change our mind and not hire her?
We have an employee who is consistently late. We’ve talked to her numerous times, but she is still late. We don’t know what to do!
When should we do our background checks – before an offer is made? After the offer is made and before employment starts? Of after the employee begins working?
How do you get the insights and information you need during job interviews? Asking the right questions is one key to getting critical intelligence, but figuring out just what to ask can be a challenge.
We’re heading into the midst of summer, the time when cubicle dwellers may be daydreaming about their escape and vying for the last few prime spots on the vacation calendar.
