Hiring Restrictions

Job and Hiring Restrictions Online Training Course

Few things are as important to an organization’s health and performance as finding and hiring the right people. The problem is often that hiring managers simply do not look at or understand the hiring lifecycle—from defining job requirements, to the recruiting, interviewing, the application processes, and even job offers. Hiring managers that fail to understand the do’s and don’ts of interviewing and hiring may miss out on the best candidates; compromise your mission, values, diversity initiatives, and workplace performance; or expose your organization to discrimination in hiring claims.  

Course Description

This course is an overview of all the steps in the hiring process, from legal parameters to practical tips. Managers, supervisors, and employees will understand how to establish and validate job requirements, implement effective recruiting programs, conduct a legally compliant and effective interview, and the importance of references and/or background checks. Managers will also learn best practices associated with all aspects of the hiring process and will have direct access to Emtrain’s course experts.
