Some industries find that their major capital investment lies in their human resources. Such businesses invest a lot into recruiting and retaining the right candidates. Sometimes, these practices result in legal complications and unavoidable hassles. To illustrate, in an era of fierce talent wars, the agreement between the tech giants Google, Apple, Intel and Adobe to not poach on each other’s employees may have seemed like a smart strategy for survival. Now, an upcoming $3 trillion class action suit claims that it is an illegal practice. The result could set new boundaries for many such agreements in future.
In the meantime, let us ensure that our actions in other areas stay legal and compliant. Hiring practices of businesses are seeing a sea change. Companies are increasing their online presence, revamping their career sites, building company pages on social networking sites and holding virtual, online job fairs. Interactions happen live in an online environment, through video communication channels and instant chats.
Let us consider some risk mitigating measures to avoid possible legal pitfalls when you hire candidates online.
Remember that technology and its attendant innovations can prove to be a boon or bane, solely depending upon how prudently they are made use of.
