Mark Spognardi warns the readers of HR Wire of possible pitfalls when recruiting via social media

General-Counselor.com contributor and Labor & Employment attorney at Arnstein & Lehr LLP, Mark Spognardi, was recently interviewed by HR Wire for an article entitled, “The Pros and Cons of Recruiting Via Social Media.”  Mr. Spognardi warns HR professionals to use social media as a screening tool rather than replacing face-to-face interviews altogether.  He goes on to remind readers that discrimination laws still apply and to ensure not to “favor or exclude candidates on protected characteristics.”
