Small business owners looking to hire new employees in Nebraska can easily get tripped up by local, state and federal laws regulating employment practices.  Generally, once employers have 15 or more employees, employment discrimination becomes an issue for small businesses.

The laws regulating employment practices apply to the entire employment cycle, beginning with hiring.  Interviewing candidates raises the possibility that a protected classification — such as race, color, religion, sex, disability, marital status or national origin — may affect a hiring decision.

For some useful suggestions on how to approach job interviews, review the article below.  If you have a small to medium sized business in Nebraska and would like more information on your rights and responsibilities as an employer, contact an employment law attorney at Thompson Law Office.  Call 402-934-0198 or toll-free 1-888-934-0198.  You can also schedule a consultation privately right now.
