During a recent interview with a new hire, a candidate was asked several discriminatory interview questions. The candidate filed a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). After your organization’s chief executive officer (CEO) was contacted by an investigator at the EEOC, you, as the newly hired human resources (HR) director, were asked to develop a new recruiting strategy and hiring process that will meet EEOC regulations. This process is needed immediately because a new mid-level manager needs to be hired.
Your CEO has asked you to recommend your strategy for filling this position. Once you develop your strategy, you will then have to prepare a presentation in which you will brief and train the organization’s leadership who will be assisting in this hire.
You will prepare a PowerPoint presentation for this briefing/training. The items below should be addressed in your presentation.
- Explain at least two federal laws against discrimination that apply to recruiting and hiring employees in your organization. Include what can happen if the laws are violated.
- Explain the pros and cons of three possible recruiting strategies. Recommend one to be utilized for this hire, and explain why you selected this strategy.
- State the knowledge, skills, and abilities (KSAs) for the mid-level management position for which you will be hiring. You must have a minimum of three for each area.
- Develop the job posting for the mid-level manager.
- Discuss the hiring process and how the hiring decision will be made.
- Develop five nondiscriminatory interview questions.
- Discuss what should not be done in the interviews, and give examples of five discriminatory questions that must be avoided; explain why.
- Discuss any legal considerations to be aware of during the selection process.
