Hiring in Florida: Laws You Should Know [FREE RESOURCE]

The hiring process is full of challenges, both for employers and job seekers. At each stage of the hiring process, employers should be careful to understand and follow the law. From advertising the open position, to choosing a candidate, and everything in between, you need to know what to watch out for.

Protected Traits

Protected traits include things like gender, disability, age, religion, and more. Under federal law, an employer cannot discriminate against an employee based on protected traits. If you’re hiring in Florida, you need to know what additional traits are protected by the state.

Job Applications

Job applications can leave you open to discrimination lawsuits if you're not careful. There's also requirements for how long you should retain applications you receive, and what to do in case a dispute does occur.

Conducting interviews

Questions that you might normally ask while getting to know someone become off limits when the conversation is a job interview. Illegal job interview questions solicit information from candidates that could be used to discriminate against them.

Hiring a candidate

Did you know that you could enter into an "implied contract" even before you officially hire someone? It's important to be aware of what you and your hiring team are saying to job candidates and new hires and watch for liabilities.
