The next Truckload Carriers Association audio conference will address legal pitfalls that ensnare motor carriers during the driver hiring process. The session, “Avoiding Legal Pitfalls in Interviewing and Screening Drivers,” will be held from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. Eastern time on Thursday, April 26.

The audio conference is designed to help carriers incorporate legal safeguards into their recruiting, screening and hiring practices. The session will answer:

  • What steps can minimize potential liability in interviewing and screening drivers;
  • What prohibited areas of inquiry can get you in trouble;
  • How you can get the information you need while steering clear of pitfalls;
  • What your rights are in conducting pre-hire testing and medical examinations;
  • How you should frame questions; and
  • Whether you are at risk if you knowingly hire away a competitor’s drivers.
