Recruitment is a complex and important activity for a manager. Effective hiring requires effective preparation. The recruitment process must be fair and safe, and there is plenty of legislation to trip up the unwary manager. Getting any part of this wrong is expensive, time consuming, and damaging to the good name of the company. This course will give you a brief overview of the major employment legislation that affects recruitment. Then the course will explore the options that any manager has when faced with hiring a new employee.
