Legal Interviewing Training Description
Hiring is the most important decision most managers make, but interviewing and selecting candidates are often poorly developed skills. With the laws around hiring becoming increasingly complex, no one has the luxury of making a bad or illegal hiring decision.  For hiring managers, legal interviewing training is a must.

Disgruntled applicants are far more likely to file claims, both with the EEOC and with the courts, if they don’t think the selection process was fair. In this business and legal climate, managers must develop an interviewing strategy that will support them in selecting top talent, avoiding the bad apples, and not creating legal risk.

Our attorney-trainers are skilled facilitators with years of experience in the courtroom and in the classroom. The half-day  program is highly experiential with group interaction, case studies, video vignettes, skill-building exercises, and plenty of time to ask questions. Participants receive a comprehensive workbook and reference guide they can use again and again.

Participants Learn

  • The power of job descriptions and how to use them to the manager’s advantage
  • How to ask effective and legal questions
  • Why behavior based questions work and how to use them
  • Screening resumes without creating legal risk
  • What to do when applicants volunteer too much personal information
  • Visas and hiring – what managers need to know about H-1Bs and more
  • Considerations regarding a diverse (multi-generational and multi-cultural) workforce
  • Understanding the employer’s policies, procedures, and forms for the hiring process
  • The legal framework for hiring including: EEO laws, affirmative action, and reasonable accommodations

Target Audience
All executives, managers, and employees who participate in the hiring process that want to keep interviews legal.

We partnered with LSA to pilot a customized behavioral interviewing program to help ensure that we continue to hire the best and brightest as we continue to rapidly scale. LSA’s ability to understand our business and our unique culture combined with their desire to ensure that the best practices will be highly adopted by our people is a real blessing. Most other firms want to just ‘give you training.’ Not LSA, they are focused on helping me hit our hiring forecasts and attract A players.
