Interviewing and hiring new employees is getting to be a demanding task for employers as it is getting more difficult to navigate California and federal employment laws.
Inappropriate questions or procedures when interviewing potential new employees might place your business next in line for a lawsuit.
Precautions should be taken with interview questions, background and credit checks, drug screening, and other pre-employment testing.
Not only are there federal requirements, but California has its own requirements you must follow when hiring new employees.
In some situations California employers may be liable by third parties for careless hiring and strictly liable for sexual harassment by their supervisors. Therefore, employers who hire anyone using screening procedures risk liability for failure to perform due diligence on all applicants.
California employment laws are the most complex in the country. Violating them has become easier to do, as shown by the large increase in employment lawsuits. Most business owners will face an employee lawsuit within five years. Should you lose, the damages awarded against you could easily range from $300,000 to over a million dollars.
