Watch this week as the Harvesters talk about job applications. Harvester Steve is going to answer the question about whether it’s ok to use the ones you buy in a store, how long you should keep them, and what questions you should and shouldn’t have on them.

This is only the “tip of the iceberg”. At the Harvest People Academy LIVE in Laguna Beach on November 18th-19th, they are going to cover every aspect of the PEOPLE PUZZLE. How to find, recruit, interview, hire, on-board, and keep your great people.

If you can’t find or keep your people, or you can’t expand your company because of staffing issues, then this academy is a MUST!

Do these same rules regarding the job application apply in Canada?

Hello Fred,

While there may be some similarities between employment laws in the USA and Canada, as they relate to employment applications, they are not uniformly identical. Accordingly, the legal standards for different Canadian provinces, various human resources functions, and personal disclosure statements should be viewed, interpreted, and applied very carefully when comparing the two countries’ standards.

For example, issues pertaining to identity theft (i.e., using a social security number or personal identifier on an employment application), role of workers’ compensation (i.e., Medical Provider Clinic vs. personal physician designation), and discrimination subtleties (e.g., ban the box, emergency contact information, work history) are likely to be different across the two nations.

Thanks,

Steve Cesare
Head Harvester, Human Resources
