Employees, Employers and Hiring Process Legal Issues

Read Show Notes

There are many reasons and situations when employment is halted. Mat Parker, Partner at Fisher Phillips, is our guest to discuss the issues employers face in recruitment/hiring/retention practices and policies.

Although employers are often forced to reduce labor through downsizing, terminations, lay-offs, what are some of the common mistakes employers make which could be prevented during these difficult times?

Are there more common “claims” of discrimination that you have noticed in your practice? And do situations come up in a variety of companies, or is it more dependent upon size of the employers or type of industry?

Does the size of the reduction in force create other factors or situations that an employer should beware of?

Are there tips for our employers on common strategies to follow in hiring procedures/practices? How does an employer ensure their review of candidates, whether they are the “most qualified” and/or the “best candidate”, reflect a thorough assessment of the individuals?

We often provide our clients with tips on how to not “age” their job search. We encourage them to practice their interviewing skills, be sure their resume is focused on today’s workplace needs, and to utilize resources/services like Employment for Seniors. Are there other tips you would encourage job applicants to consider?

When an employer calls to post a job with EFS, knowing our clients are mature job seekers, the employer is committed to widening the pool of applicants and finding those with strong experience. Many of our listeners are not in Central Ohio. Could you give the audience some tips on how to manage a strong recruitment/retention programs, such as where and how should they be posting jobs to ensure a diverse pool? And what costs are incurred when an employer is not cognizant of age issues?

Have you found situations where employers have created accommodations to assist their older workers – whether they need to have additional training in updating skills, or they are moving toward semi or full retirement? [e.g., flex or part time scheduling, changing job tasks or upskilling workers to meet the current needs]
