How many ways can you sue a recruiter?

I am substituting my regularly scheduled episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” for this special episode.

A little over a decade ago, I co-hosted “The Recruiters Lounge Podcast” with my pal – Karen Mattonen. It was very successful podcast at the time and in celebration of it, I have recently launched “The Retro Lounge” podcast which republishes the original episodes. As a sneak preview of the type of banter we shared discussing diverse HR issues, tune in to this special reunion episode where Karen and I meander across the following topics:

  • What can recruiters learn from the real estate industry?
  • What changes has Karen noticed in the industry since her departure?
  • How many ways can a recruiter be sued for bad hiring habits?
  • How to avoid lawsuits when dealing with inexperienced candidates
  • Are recruiters open to legal jeopardy when editing a candidate’s resume?
  • Is it really unethical to recruit candidates away from a former client and place them with a new client?
  • Plus, a very, very long rant about recruiter ethics and a quick plug for the runaway bestseller “The Robot Proof Recruiter.”
