Staying Compliant: Here’s How To Ensure Legal & Ethical Hiring Practices
For seasoned department managers, it can be difficult to find qualified candidates to fill open roles while simultaneously supporting your existing staff. In addition, you want to follow employment laws and achieve recruitment compliance but may not have the time or expertise to know exactly how to do so. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Hiring risks are real, and so is the pressure to get great hires into vacant positions – fast. Here are some tips to help you stay compliant as you bring top talent on board.
Find A Credible Partner
If you handle recruitment often, you might have explored various staffing agencies in the past, but not all firms are created equal. In fact, the best partner to have is one that has been established for many years and understands the ins and outs of employment laws. This is why engaging with a reputable partner that has been in business since 1986, like NW Staffing, is the most trusted way to go.
Express Your Concerns
If recruitment compliance is a top priority for you, make sure to communicate this to your staffing agency. When they tell you they can mitigate hiring risks, follow up with some targeted questions. For example, ask them if they can guide you in accommodating a new hire’s disabilities or how they handle employment verification, so your company doesn’t fall prey to fraudulent documents during the recruitment process. They should have deep expertise in these areas and be able to quickly put your concerns to rest. If not? Keep interviewing agencies.
Invest In The Right People
One critical part of keeping your company ethically above board is to hire people with integrity and a strong track record. To this end, simply navigating the laws during recruitment isn’t enough. You also need a staffing partner that knows how to thoroughly screen candidates, and find you a lasting placement. At NW Staffing, we go in-depth with our screening process, followed by thoughtfully conducted interviews and follow-up with at least two work-related references. We do all we can to make sure you have the right fit, and employees you can trust.
