Like most of America, I spent a few hours this weekend seeing the new Avengers movie.
(Don’t worry – no spoilers here in this post.)
But it’s amazing how much the Marvel Universe has permeated our pop culture the last few years.
So, it is with tongue firmly in cheek, when I use this post to talk about a presentation I’m doing tomorrow with my colleagues that plays off one such segment of these movies.
Entitled, “Guardian of Your Own Galaxy: Making Informed Decisions on Hiring (Legally) and Sharing Information (When Appropriate)”, we’re going to talk a lot about how the hiring decisions of Tony Stark (i.e. Iron Man), Pepper Potts and how Stark Enterprises is run.
Ok, one spoiler alert: No Tony Stark.
Instead, we’re going to talk all things related to the hiring process: Background checks, interview questions, school-related employment history checks, registry checks, credit checks, ban the box, etc.
We’re also going to talk about personnel files and how FOIA requests should be addressed in the context of information about personnel.
All of this is part of my firm’s Labor & Employment Spring Seminar: 2018 Public Sector Legal Update tomorrow.
Star-Lord and Drax will not be there but we hope to see you there.
