On Wednesday, October 26, 2011, The Recruiting Animal welcomed me back to his BlogTalkRadio show for the 3rd time to discuss contract issues for recruiters and their principals. My segment lasts about 15 minutes. The interview is here (MP3) (not the whole show, just my segment) or here.
We discussed the practice of recruiters announcing that they’ll be conducting interviews for a limited period of time at some location in a community (e.g., a cafe, library). More specifically, we looked at whether discrimination against protected classes could arise (e.g., socioeconomic status, disability) if the interviews are conducted in a location that’s not reasonably accessible for protected classes. In other words, recruiters need to be careful of disparate impact against protected classes when choosing where & when (need to be careful of holidays) to conduct these interviews.
