Compliance challenges for Recruiting & Hiring: steering clear of discrimination

The global economy has a global workforce. Companies are recruiting talent from across the world, and some of the best recruits will come from other countries. US export control laws and regulations can and do say who should and should not have access to controlled items, technology and facilities, but rejecting someone from a job solely on the basis of their citizenship or nationality can be considered illegal discrimination under US law. Recent enforcement actions highlight the risks companies may encounter in navigating these laws.

In this timely session, attorneys Jahna Hartwig (Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati) and Lizbeth Rodriguez-Johnson (Reed Smith) discuss the legal issues that can set a company’s recruitment efforts on the road to discriminating against individuals based on their citizenship or nationality, and consider the measures you can take to balance employment rights with trade compliance requirements in order to avoid the reputational damage, fines and penalties that can arise when you neglect one or the other.
