In the search to find the best candidate for a position, employers must be alive to the potential claims and complaints that could be brought against them for their conduct during the hiring process. To avoid costly litigation, it is essential for employers to develop best practices that are consistent with the various legal obligations imposed on them during the selection and hiring of employees.

In order to develop these best practices, it is important to understand the legal obligations governing the employment relationship. During the hiring process, employers must pay specific attention to the prohibitions set out in the Human Rights Code.
