What is Protected Characteristics and How They Relate to Your Hiring Process

This webinar with expert speaker Mary Gormandy White will provide hiring managers with a comprehensive overview of what they need to know 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. The objective is for participants to develop (and be able to apply!) a working knowledge of what they cannot try to learn about applicants - and cannot use - in the hiring process in order to stay in compliance with equal employment opportunity requirements.

This session will provide you a better understanding of protected characteristics and how they relate to the hiring process. You'll also get a brief overview of EEO laws relevant to 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

Who should attend

  • Hiring Managers
  • Recruiters
  • HR professionals
  • Business owners
  • Staffing professionals
  • Talent acquisition professionals
  • Anyone involved in any aspect of the hiring process
