Essential Recruitment Series 2019 – Part 1 - Lawful Effective Recruitment 3 April 2019 (On Demand)



Hiring Do’s and Don’ts

Recruiting staff can involve a minefield of legal issues. In this essential webinar, find out how to make sure you lawfully recruit the right staff.

Employment law changes taking effect this year will require larger employers to implement better recruitment practices. Employers with more than 19 staff will no longer be able to rely on 90 day trial periods from 6 May 2019. How will this impact on the way you select staff?

Discover how to manage the change in 90 day trial periods, while avoiding discrimination claims. Find out how to ensure compliance with human rights, employment and privacy law.

We will discuss practical tips for application forms and best practice when offering employment.

  • Avoid discrimination in advertisements and interviews

  • References and background checks – the lowdown on the law
