In this episode, guest host Jennifer Terry discusses five things that might surprise Latin American companies thinking about doing business in California. Her conversation highlights how seemingly harmless employment ads may give rise to claims of discrimination, and what types of questions employers should avoid in the hiring interviews. Jennifer also discusses the process that employers must follow to verify that employees are authorized to work in the United States, and what steps an employer must take if it suspects an employee who is already hired may be using false documents to show work authorization. Finally, Jennifer discusses how Latin American entities may benefit from retaining a lawyer who not only shepherds them through the regulatory employment hurdles in California, but who also understands their business goals, culture and language.
