In order to hire a qualified employee, companies must consider a wide variety of traits, such as skill level, job flexibility, and experience. However, finding talent is only the first step in the recruitment process; companies must also understand the relevant labor laws concerning the governance of employees. – DC Doing Business Guide, 2015/2016
