Buckley Presents on Legal Issues in Recruiting and Hiring

March 10, 2020

Jennifer Penberthy Buckley presented on legal issues in recruiting and hiring at a two-day human resource law course hosted by the National Business Institute in New Castle, Del.

Buckley’s presentation covered:

  • Creating legally effective job descriptions
  • Writing job offers and rejection letters that repel lawsuits
  • Legal aspects of gaining information through criminal background checks and social media accounts
  • Drafting employment contracts

An employment counselor and litigation, Buckley advises employers on adopting and implementing effective policies consistent with federal and state law; responding to employee requests for leave and accommodation; avoiding and responding to discrimination claims; and more. Her employee benefits practice includes drafting and revising welfare benefit plans, deferred compensation and executive compensation plans, and Section 125 or “cafeteria” plans and “wrap” documents. She also counsels employers in drafting and negotiating enforceable employment agreements, restrictive covenants, retention agreements, and separation agreements.
