Avoid Common Hiring Pitfalls

As an employer, you have certain obligations and laws you have to follow when hiring people. Here are a few common problem areas.

  • Discriminating based on race, gender, or disability.
  • Asking interview questions about age, citizenship, or drug use.
  • Following government regulations such as obtaining workers’ comp insurance, setting up employees’ payroll to withhold federal taxes, etc.

Whether you’re making your very first hire or you have legal questions about existing employees, speaking with an employment lawyer is a smart move. Join LegalShield today and you can be on the phone with a lawyer in as little as 4 hours.

Handle Termination According to the Law

Most wrongful termination lawsuits make one or more of the following claims against the employer.

  • Violation of an anti-discrimination law
  • Violation of an employment agreement
  • Violation of labor laws
  • Claims that termination was used as a form of harassment or retaliation

If you need help terminating an employee in a way that will avoid a lawsuit or you need help setting up proper employment documents and termination processes for the future, join LegalShield today and let our business lawyers guide you.
