Workers Compensation: Your Safety Net

You put your heart and soul into your job, so it seems only fair that you should be protected from harm while you’re there. Most good employers do go out of their way to provide safety training and equipment to keep their workers safe and protected from any hazards. Federal agencies, like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also have standards in place for employers to follow to keep their workers safe. However, sometimes accidents happen anyway, and when they do, workers compensation is meant to be your safety net. Most of the time, if you follow your company’s procedures for filing a workers compensation claim, you’ll be paid with no trouble. However, I know from experience that it isn’t always that easy. I started this blog to help you learn what to do when your company or their insurance company denies your workers compensation claim.

5 Roles Of Legal Recruiter You Should Know

A legal recruiter specializes in identifying legal professionals to fit legal positions within organizations. Here are the key roles of a legal recruiter you should know.

Act as Matchmaker Between Employers and Job Seekers

An employer needs legal help or to hire a lawyer, but where can they find someone who has experience in a particular legal field? A legal recruiter knows how to match this need with qualified candidates. The recruiter might have access to legal professionals that are currently not working or even actively looking for new positions. As a result, these legal professionals could be contacted about the job opening.

Act as Industry Advisors for Employers

Legal recruiters act as trusted advisors on certain legal disciplines or market conditions. This is because they understand the legal job market trends as well as the legal staffing needs of their clients.

Act as Communication Liaison Between Employer and Job Seekers

In certain situations, legal recruiters take the role of a middleman, or even a buffer, between legal employers and legal job seekers. An employer might be hesitant to contact a candidate directly because they are concerned about a potentially bad response from that candidate. They can instead reach out to legal recruiters, making it filtered through someone else other than themselves. Similarly, legal job seekers sometimes do not want the responsibility of constantly contacting companies about open positions because this may scare off potential employers who feel overwhelmed with such communication. As such, legal recruiters become an important bridge between legal employers and legal professionals.

Act as Thought Leaders on the Latest Practice Areas and Industry Trends

Legal recruiters regularly stay up to date with legal practice areas, legal culture, legal market trends, etc. This is useful for legal employers because recruiters are able to provide an outside perspective about their organization's legal needs. Furthermore, this inside knowledge that legal recruiters possess can mean that they understand where the industry will be going in future years. This allows them to better advise legal employers so they do not have to struggle with making future strategic decisions by themselves. Finally, it allows them easier access to companies that are looking for similar positions within the industry.

Act as Brand Promoters for Legal Market

The legal market is very much driven by reputation and branding. Legal recruiters can be viewed as public relations professionals when they promote legal employers to legal job seekers in order to generate better overall brand recognition for legal employers.

In conclusion, a legal recruiter's job is diverse and detailed because they have so many roles to fulfill throughout the entire process of hiring new legal professionals.
