Employee Hiring and Orientation Toolkit
Resources to assist an employer in recruiting, interviewing, hiring and onboarding employees.
While employers can never completely eliminate the risks associated with the employment relationship, they can dramatically reduce their potential exposure by tightening up their employee on-boarding practices. Key areas of exposure include:
Discrimination and retaliation claims.
Theft of trade secrets and confidential information.
Immigration audits and fines.
Wage and hour class actions.
In the face of these risks, robust hiring practices and more rigorous compliance processes at the beginning of the employment relationship can help:
Minimize exposure to discrimination claims by appropriately handling candidate:
job interviews; and
Preserve an employer's competitive advantage by creating enforceable agreements that:
protect confidential information; and
Avoid regulatory sanctions and class actions from the start of any employment relationship by complying with:
wage and hour; and
employee classification requirements.
The Employee Hiring and Orientation Toolkit provides a number of continuously maintained resources designed to assist an employer in recruiting, interviewing and hiring employees.
