Are you a new lawyer exploring employment law as a practice area? Maybe you’re an experienced lawyer who wants to expand your practice into employment law? Or perhaps you’re in-house counsel or a general practitioner whose work requires a basic but current understanding of employment law?

If you fit any of these situations, this convenient, 90 minute webinar is for you! Taught with the non-specialist in mind, this fun, fast-paced course quickly and clearly explains common employment law problems that arise from missteps during the hiring and termination processes. What may an employer ask a job candidate? What questions and topics should be avoided? What can an employer do and not do when checking references? To what degree can an employer use social media in the hiring process? What should a careful employer do when evaluating whether to terminate? If an employer decides to terminate, how should the termination be carried out and documented? How can exit interviews land an employer in hot water? Learn the answers to these important day-to-day questions and more!

From pre-employment considerations to post-termination issues, experienced employment lawyers Lisa Bolton and Tim Allen will share best practices and specific suggestions for reducing the risks of statutory and common law liability claims. Onscreen hypotheticals and audience polling will keep you on your toes and reinforce essential hiring and firing do’s and don’ts.
