Whether you are hiring employees or trying to get someone to hire you, starting the employment relationship can be a stressful process. Employers and hiring managers need to know what they can do, say, and ask without running afoul of the law. Applicants need to know their rights, so they can refuse illegal requests, avoid mistakes that could compromise their position later, and steer clear of unscrupulous and unfair employers.

This section explains the legal rules that apply to the hiring process, from background checks and qualification requirements to work authorization, interviewing, first-day paperwork, and more.
