Dos & Don'ts of Interviews

Having an interview process in place helps you find suitable candidates, and protects you as an employer. This involves writing a job description, posting your ad, pre-screening candidates, conducting interviews, checking references, and making a hire.

Criminal Record Checks

In British Columbia, vulnerable sector criminal record checks (CRC) must be completed via the Criminal Records Review Program for anyone working with and/or left alone with children or vulnerable adults, including respite caregivers and volunteers (governed by the Criminal Record Review Act).
