When you are hiring someone, there are many things to consider. Finding the right person for the job is certainly one of them. But just as important are taking steps to protect yourself from charges of discriminatory hiring practices and ensuring that your job offer does not somehow imply a "contract of employment" — which means that you could end up having to pay damages if you try to fire the employee.
The Employee Hiring Package contains four documents that will help accomplish all of these goals. The first is an application form to help make sure you have all the relevant information at hand to pick the best applicant. The second is a waiver form to protect you from unintentionally creating an employment contract during the hiring process. The third is a form to help document your hiring selection process to show that you are not engaging in discriminatory practices. The file also includes a post-employment information form for your employee records. You can quickly customize all of these documents for your needs.
The file contains a seven-page document. The forms in this document are formatted as tables in Microsoft Word 6.0. To use these forms, you need Microsoft version 6.0 or above.
Included are the following:
Sample Application for Employment:
Application Form Waiver:
Applicant Selection Criteria Record:
Post-Employment Information Form:
