Ever conduct an interview?
Of course you have.
Maybe you have unknowingly broken the law by asking certain illegal questions.
According to a recent national CareerBuilder online survey conducted by Harris Poll, at least one third of employers were not aware that the following subjects were not legal to discuss when interviewing a potential employee:
- political affiliation
- marital status
- number of or plans to have/not have children
- financial status/debt
- arrest records (but asking about convictions is allowed)
- reason for military discharge
- citizenship/national origin (but asking if a potential employee is legally eligible to work in the U.S. is allowed)
You may have been on the receiving end of some of those questions in the past. I know I have.
Now you know.
