The Hiring Process

No matter what kind of business you run, your success or failure depends largely on the quality of your staff. The hiring process, including everything from writing a job description to conducting interviews and choosing the best candidates, should always be done with careful attention to detail. There are a host of laws that an employer must follow during the hiring process. FindLaw's The Hiring Process section provides information about job advertisements, illegal interview questions, discrimination laws, drug testing, background checks, employment contracts and related issues. In this section, you can also find information about what distinguishes an employee from an independent contractor, and the consequences of misclassifying a worker.
