On June 6th, from 9:30 AM – 11 AM, I’ll be at Chicago’s City Hall, #805, presenting on How to Hire an Employee. Thanks to the City of Chicago’s Small Business Center for setting this up. Here’s their official description: This workshop will answer all of your questions in an interactive presentation focusing on issues concerning classifying employees (independent contractor versus a W-2 employee); hourly versus salaried employees; background screening and investigating job applicants; and other issues in the hiring process. Please reserve your attendance by calling 312-744-2086 or email BACPoutreach@ci
On 4/23 I did my umpteenth interview for the Recruiting Animal’s Blog Talk Radio program. The entire program is here. My segment of the show, which starts at about 7.5 minutes into the program, & lasts around 25 minutes, is contained in the media player below. The topics we discussed include severance packages & how to negotiate them, from both sides, blind or backdoor reference checks, & requesting social security numbers from job applicants.
