Course Description
Questionable Interview Questions


Many aspects of employment are heavily regulated in the U.S., none more than the interviewing and hiring process. State and federal statutes and court decisions prohibit employers from discriminating against certain groups of people and from taking actions that impact those groups adversely and unfairly.

Employees involved in the recruiting, interviewing and hiring process need to be aware of the laws that govern the questions they ask applicants. This Course will help them (1) avoid the questions that could get them or your company into legal trouble, and (2) phrase their questions within legal limits to elicit the information the company needs.


Outcome
By completing this course you will learn:
  • To avoid the questions that could get employees or your company into legal trouble
  • To phrase your questions within legal limits to elicit the information the company needs

Assessment
