The Jules F. Knapp Entrepreneurship Center presents “Hiring Your First Employee: Legal Requirements, Paperwork, Liabilities, and Expenses” on Thursday, November 3 from 6–8 p.m. in Room 170 on the Downtown Campus (565 W. Adams, Chicago).

Interviewing potential employees and hiring and onboarding new employees are rife with legal obligations. Whether it be a legally-compliant job application or jumping through the dreaded I-9 process, being prepared and educated on how to interview, hire, and train properly will reduce the risk of legal exposure.

This lecture focuses on the important first-steps of interviewing and hiring prospective employees and a step-by-step process of what needs to legally be done to onboard new hires—information every company, especially start-ups, should be aware of.

This lecture will be facilitated by Scott Fanning and Jason D. Keck, both associates at Fisher Phillips.
