Leadership Steps to Minimize Risk when Hiring

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Fri, Oct 11, 2013 @ 09:35 AM

humorous motivational speakerI was a humorous motivational speaker for a bankers conference recently. The other leadership guest speaker was John E. Lyncheski, a Lawyer from Naples florida.

John delivered a funny motivational speech on the legal implications on hiring. Rarely do I find lawyers funny so I am blogging about the humorous motivational speaker.

Some of the interesting tidbits gleaned from the funny motivational speech were:

The Average employment discrimination verdict in North America is $107,000

Class Action Lawsuits can bankrupt an organization

Employment "Rules"are against employers

New Employment legislation is almost always employee friendly and and employer burden

Most Jurors are employees not bosses

A Survey of Potential Jurors ( Dispute Dynamics) suggests that 61% agreed it is an important function of juries to send messages to employers to improve their behavior

88% believe that companies care more about profits than their own employees

On hiring right the humorous motivational speaker and lawyer says, " its not about how many vacancies you fill, but how you fill your vacancies"

In regards to employment applications, 40% contain material lies or omissions

When it comes to hiring, what you don't know can and will hurt you.
