ARE ALL YOUR HR PROCEDURES
Interviewing: Is there potential liability before you’ve even hired an employee?
       The answer is “Yes”. Applicable Federal and State laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of an
applicant’s race, color, national origin, religion, sex, genetics, age and/or, but not limited to other factors
such as disability, family/marital status and in some states, sexual orientation.
        Lawsuits and discrimination claims by employees and applicants have been at record high levels.
Business owners and supervisors/managers are at the front line making decisions which may, without in-
tention, create opportunities for lawsuits in employment areas such as pay raises, promotions/demotions,
terminations, work assignments, and one of the most legally dangerous of all those areas, interviewing po-
tential job candidates.
       One simple misguided question may cause an applicant to think he or she did not get the job be-
cause of an illegal reason. The burden of proof remains on the potential employer to show the action was
not discriminatory. In the absence of a good reason otherwise, a jury may legally presume discrimination
bringing liability to both the business and the individual supervisor/manager.
       So how do you avoid liability before you’ve even hired a job applicant?
        First and foremost, make sure your business has developed written policies & procedures with re-
gard to the interviewing & hiring process, and train your managers. Also, ask questions consistently
among applicants which are specific to the applicant’s ability to perform the job functions and meet job
qualifications.
        Second, if you and/or your company are presented with an allegation of discrimination under one
of the Federal or State statutes such as Title VII and you have less than 15 employees, those statutes may
not apply to your business and it is important to notify the investigating agency your business is not cov-
ered.
        There may also be additional liability as a matter of fair employment practices, so here are
some questions you should NEVER ask:
     How old are you? When did you graduate from High School?
     What does your husband or wife do?
     This job requires you work extra hours. Do you have children or other obligations which would
        cause a problem?
     Do you own or rent a home?
     What church do you attend?
     Have you ever been arrested?
     From what country are you a citizen?
     Do you have any debt?
     Do you suffer from any illness or disability?
     Have you ever been treated for drug addiction?
     Tell me about yourself? – Open ended and invites personal information

        These among many other questions may be considered illegal and support a claim of discrimina-
tion. Be thoughtful as to how you ask questions and consider legal ways to identify the candidate best
suited for the available position.
        If an applicant begins to volunteer personal information, it is best to politely stop them and let them
know the personal information they shared will not be part of the decision making process.

                                     When a hurricane threatens
  ■ Store drinking water in any clean containers – bathtubs, bottles, pots, etc., as the water supply may become contaminated.
  ■ Secure outdoor objects that may be blown away or uprooted or store them inside.
  ■ Fuel up your car. You may need to evacuate quickly and/or sit in traffic for hours. Service stations may also become inoperable.
  ■ Secure homes and buildings by boarding up each window. Tape is not adequate.
  ■ Moor your boat securely or move it to a designated safe place.
  ■ If in a mobile home, check tie-downs and evacuate. Historically, manufactured homes suffer the greatest amount of damage during hurricanes.
  ■ Move valuables, personal papers, family photos and important computer disks to a waterproof container on the highest level of your home or
  pack them to take with you.
  ■ Turn off utilities if told to do so by authorities. Unplug small appliances.
  ■ Turn off propane tanks.

  If you have to evacuate
  ■ Make sure your gas tank is full.
  ■ Prepare your vehicle for what could be a very long ride. Stock your vehicle with
  necessities such as water, food, pillows and blankets, toilet paper, current maps,
  baby supplies, pet supplies, prescription medicines and cash.
  ■ Bring proof of residency — your driver’s license, a utility bill or rent receipt —
  in case you will need Red Cross or FEMA assistance.

  During a hurricane
  ■ Stay away from windows, skylights and glass doors, even if they are boarded or
  covered.
  ■ Stay on the floor that is least likely to be affected by strong winds and floodwa-
  ters. A small interior room without windows on the first floor is usually the safest
  place.
  ■ Beware of the eye of the hurricane. If the calm storm center passes directly over-
  head, there will be a lull in the wind that can last up to half an hour. Winds will rise again to hurricane force.

  After a hurricane
  ■ If forced into a public shelter, stay until told by local officials it’s safe to return to your home.
  ■ Read the Houston Chronicle, log on to chron.com, tune in to NewsRadio 740 KTRH or KPRC Local 2 News or log on to click2houston.com for
  advice and instructions about emergency medical, food and housing aid, and other forms of assistance.
  ■ Do not drive unless it is absolutely necessary.
  ■ Do not drink or prepare food with tap water until you are certain it’s not contaminated.
  ■ If you smell gas, leave your house and call your gas supplier.
  ■ Look for electrical system damage. Stay away from loose or dangling wires or power lines.
  ■ Check for sewage and water line damage.
  ■ Watch out for displaced animals, especially poisonous snakes that may have come into buildings with floodwaters.
  ■ Watch for loose plaster, drywall and ceilings that could fall.
  ■ Take photos of any damage, both of buildings and their contents, for insurance claims. Make minor repairs to prevent further damage or looting,
  but do not make major repairs or dispose of damaged property until it has been inspected by an adjuster. Save all receipts.
  ■ If your power has gone out, open refrigerators and freezers only when necessary. A freezer without power can keep food in satisfactory condition
  up to 36 hours if it is kept closed. Wrapping a freezer in blankets will help insulate it.
  ■ Open windows and doors to ventilate and dry your home.
  ■ Avoid disaster areas; stay away from floodwaters, flooded roads and washed-out bridges.
  ■ Stay away from riverbanks, bayous and streams until all potential flooding has passed. Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent flooding,
  even after the storm has passed.
  ■ Call your insurance company if you have vehicle or property damage to report.

                                              Remember your radio
             Those who remember the big storms know what it means to have a battery-operated radio. Houstonians who hid in closets or bathrooms,
  listening to the unending howl of Hurricane Alicia, those trapped in their cars on flooded roadways during Tropical Storm Allison, and Bayou City
  residents trying to evacuate in advance of Hurricanes Rita and Ike, all recall the comfort they found through their radios. The friendly and helpful
  voices of NewsRadio 740 KTRH were there to get them through the storm and will be there again when the next storm hits.
             Electrical power is usually the first casualty of a hurricane or tropical storm. But contact with vital information is easy to maintain
  through a battery-operated radio. And it’s not only information; your radio is also a link to a calm place while the storm swirls around you.
  NewsRadio 740 KTRH is there for you 24 hours a day. The KTRH 24-Hour Traffic Center is also there for you, as it was throughout Tropical
  Storm Allison, Hurricanes Rita and Ike, every day, to help you get where you need to go with constant reports on street and route closures, high
  water and estimated drive times to help you. The dedicated men and women of NewsRadio 740 KTRH work around the clock in an effort to keep
  you up-to-date and safe. And they are there for you when the power is out. Just remember, when you put together supplies for hurricane season,
  make fresh batteries for your flashlights and radios a priority. Whether at home in the dark or stuck on the road, think of NewsRadio 740 KTRH as
  your lifeline.
