Interviewing Compliance: What Hiring Managers Need to Know About EEO Requirements

Pre Recorded

  • 60 minutes

This webinar will provide people involved in all aspects of the hiring process with a comprehensive overview of key facts about protected characteristics to screen applicants, conduct interviews and make hiring decisions in a manner that is compliant with all U.S. equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws and regulations. 

Attendees will deepen their knowledge of off-limits topics for the hiring process beyond what is found on the often-used lists of illegal interview questions commonly used when “training” people on how to hire. These lists may in some cases be a good starting point, but they don’t fully equip people who make hiring decisions with everything they need to know to avoid introducing the potential for discrimination into the hiring process.  

Session Highlights: 

  • Why a list of ‘illegal interview questions’ to avoid is not sufficient

  • What the protected characteristics are and why they are off-limits during the hiring process

  • Common hiring process mistakes (to avoid) related to protected characteristics

  • Examples of less-than-obvious off-limits topics based on real-world situations

  • Best practices to avoid EEO-related risks and liability related to the hiring process
