Interviewing for Effective Low-Risk HiringYou do not need to be a lawyer to successfully manage the hiring process.  You only need a basic awareness of EEO laws and regulations and a dedication to work within their guidelines.
Blatant disregard or intentional violation of these laws can create serious penalties, usually financial in nature, for the offending company.  Also, be aware that ignorance of the law is no excuse – and not much of a defense when an applicant’s lawyer or government attorney for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission takes you to court.This course will explain how, when, and why to screen employees. It will give you the tools necessary to plan the interview, ask pertinent questions, avoid civil rights violations, and make informed hiring decisions.
