Course Description

Every person you employ is covered by Equal Employment Opportunity laws. While most employers are well intentioned and do not mean to discriminate, it is important to be aware of the rules governing discrimination so you do not unintentionally run afoul of these protections.

In this increasingly complex hiring and employment environment, it is essential to understand what attributes are protected and how these protections impact your hiring processes, from your first advertisement to your actual interviews and decision-making.

Employers want to hire the best people possible while avoiding a complaint of discrimination in the hiring process because of someone’s, race, sex, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual or affectional preference, veteran status, etc.

The primary goal of the course is to prepare individuals who will be hiring employee(s) for a particular job or jobs.

In this interactive webinar, Harold Levy, a recognized expert on human resources and management issues, will:

  • Look at position description and job development, recruitment issues, and onboarding issues in relation to race, ethnicity, gender, etc. but also across business functions, geographic areas, managerial levels
  • Explore how all these things can affect the workplace and profitability.

Why you should attend

One of the primary responsibilities of a business – large or small – is to operate within the confines of the law.

The harsh reality? Discrimination is evident throughout the entire employment cycle — from the top to the very bottom, before candidates even manage to get a foot in the door.

The good news is that awareness can make a huge difference.

Setting up transparent and ethical workplace hiring policies that align with your core values will also help you attract and retain the best team for your business and ensure you never break the law.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Discuss various types of discrimination, how it currently looks in the workplace, and ways you’re likely perpetuating discrimination without realizing it, and how you can rectify it.
  • Examine and give best practices of effective and a liability free hiring process
  • Discuss how to avoid discriminating against someone because of a protected characteristic while in process of employing someone for wages.
