    Spring/Summer Lunch & Learn Series - Session 2

    Hiring Vets, the Disabled and Those with Criminal Records

    The subject of hiring Veterans, the Disabled and Those with Criminal Records has become more important as the post-COVID workforce contraction slowly rebounds.  This session will examine the interplay of law and “best practices” for the hiring of these categories of applicants. 

    Attendees of this session will be able to:

    • Identify permissible and impermissible scope of application/interview questions for each category

    • Navigate the interplay of the ADA/PHRA with Veterans, particularly those with PTSD

    • Understand the boundary of “undue hardship” standard for the reasonable accommodation analysis

    • Properly decline to hire applicants with criminal records under state and federal law


    Speaker:  Kevin Moore, Esq. (click for bio)

    This program will be presented virtually via Zoom.  Cost is $10 for chapter members and $15 for guests.

    • Tuesday, July 27 S. Whitney Rahman presents "Managing HR Records and Files"

    These sessions will also be held via Zoom unless circumstances allow us to return to the Wyomissing Family Restaurant for them.
