Finding and hiring the right personnel for your business venture can be time-consuming and difficult, but on top of that, if not done correctly, interviewing and hiring can land you in legal hot water, especially in a highly litigious state like California.
To help you navigate the treacherous legal waters of the Golden State, we have developed our comprehensive Interviewing and Hiring Program for Small Businesses.
In addition, you definitely want to get your hiring done right the first time. According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), it can cost up to 30 percent of an employee’s salary to replace a wrong hire, with the tally ranging from $7,000 to $40,000 depending on the position. Worse, if you violate any anti-discrimination laws during the hiring process, you can be socked with penalties and face lawsuits. In fact, discrimination charges and legal actions nationwide have been on the rise consistently for the past few years.
Our exclusive small business HR solution includes a guidebook featuring recommendations from three attorneys, two sets of
documentation forms to avoid common legal issues relating to interview questions and evaluations, and best practices in recruiting and screening employees (including behavioral and performance-based interview techniques).
Using this program to establish a new process or update an existing process can help your business avoid unnecessary replacement hiring costs and possible penalties and lawsuits due to legal violations.
If you were to research the valuable information and forms available in our program, it would take you countless hours, to say nothing of the huge attorney’s bill you’d run up getting answers to questions that our attorneys have already answered for you in our comprehensive guide. Our solution can be quickly and effectively implemented at your place of business by just following the practices and processes outlined in the Interviewing and Hiring Guide for Small Businesses.
