Employment Law - Employer Articles
Interviewing Job Applicants
It is essential for employers to receive the information they need about prospective employees in order to make the best decision about who has the best qualifications to meet their employment needs. However, there are certain types of information that employers are either not allowed to gather about job applicants or are restricted in their use. Thus, employers need to develop fair hiring practices to ensure consistency in the process and compliance with the law.
What Should Employers Include in Employee Handbooks?
All employers, even small business owners, should create handbooks of the company's policies and procedures and provide copies to all of their employees. While handbooks are not a legal requirement, they provide a simple way for employers to record their policies and disseminate them to the workforce. They also provide a reliable tool supervisors and employees can refer to when in doubt of a particular policy.
Immigration Law Case Summaries
[07/23] Alvarado v. Holder
A petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' decision finding petitioner removable because his conviction for attempted possession of a dangerous drug, in violation of Arizona Revised Statute section 13-3407(A)(1), constituted a violation of state law relating to a controlled substance, is: 1) dismissed in part for lack of jurisdiction, where petitioner waived his argument that Arizona's attempt statute is categorically broader than the federal generic definition; and 2) denied in part, where, under the modified categorical approach, the government met its burden to prove removability based on attempted possession of methamphetamine, a controlled substance offense.
