Vision Check


To test for 20/20 HR vision, determine which of the following policies pose a risk to you and your organization. (Hint: there are three)

  • Firing bad employees regardless of race, sex, religion, age, national origin or disability?
  • Having a management practice that unauthorized overtime will not be paid?
  • Having a company policy statement against sexual harassment in the employee handbook?
  • Asking whether a candidate is a US citizen on an application?
  • Firing an alcoholic for drinking whiskey on the job?
  • "Testing out" a new employee with a probationary period?
  • Rejecting an applicant for having a "bad attitude" during an interview?
