Speed Dating for Employers:  Effective (and Lawful) Hiring and Onboarding of Employees

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Check-in: 7:45 a.m. Breakfast: 7:45 a.m. Program: 8:15 a.m. to 12 noon



Building a quality workforce begins with effective (and lawful) hiring and onboarding techniques. How can you tell if your applicant is the best person for the job? What documentation is required or permitted in the hiring process? How do you effectively onboard a new employee? What should your new employee do in those first critical weeks of employment?

In this informative seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler with the LightGabler law firm will discuss the effective and lawful hiring and onboarding of California employees. Topics covered will include the following:

  • Job postings and advertisements
  • Documentation of the hiring process
  • Job applications(and the language you should never use)
  • Job references and background checks
  • Using the internet to research your applicant
  • Interview questions to ask (and not to ask!)
  • Rules regarding criminal convictions
  • How to tell if the applicant is the right "fit" for your company
  • The conditional job offer
  • Offer letters vs. employment agreements
  • Mandatory pre-hire documentation
  • Revoking a job offer
  • Mandatory and recommended new hire documents
  • The introductory period
  • Proper classification of new hires
  • Orientation checklists and documentation
  • Job descriptions
  • Employee training



Karen L. Gabler, Employment Attorney, collaborates with her clients to develop proactive strategies designed to enhance workplace productivity and avoid employment disputes. She serves as an external human resources consultant for numerous businesses, providing counsel to management and conducting training programs for both management and employees. 

Ms. Gabler performs internal audits of clients' employment practices to ensure strategic compliance with current laws, and guides client investigations of employee allegations regarding harassment, discrimination, and employee theft or other misconduct.
