Discrimination in the workplace can occur before a hire is even made. The laws barring workplace discrimination run the gamut of the employment process, including the pre-employment phase. Employers must be aware of what conduct is permissible and what conduct could be problematic in order to implement and follow appropriate hiring and recruiting practices. Preparation and knowledge are key in avoiding and defending failure to hire claims.
