Hiring the right employee can be a challenging task. New laws and court decisions have only complicated a process that is often done quickly.  This complimentary webinar will address the legal risks inherent in the hiring process.  Presenters will recap noteworthy laws and decisions, while offering practical guidance to avoid and reduce risk. Topics will include:

  • Pre- and post-offer inquiries for applicants 
  • Use of background checks (including criminal record and credit history checks)
  • Connecticut’s new “Ban the Box” law
  • Use of social media in screening applicants

Neither the Connecticut Judicial Branch nor the Commission on Minimum Continuing Legal Education approve or accredit CLE providers or activities.
