    Interviewing and Hiring Lawfully

    Employers who fail to train employees on lawful interviewing and hiring risk legal liability. U.S. Supreme Court cases make clear that employers should train their employees how to avoid discrimination in the hiring process. Moreover, an employer’s failure to provide training on lawful hiring has been held to be “reckless indifference” such that damages to punish the employer should be awarded.

    All human resource professionals, supervisors, and managers should be required to take this training. In addition, any non-supervisory employee who is asked to interview an applicant or otherwise participate in the hiring process should be required to take this course.
