Illegal Questions

  1. 1. Illegal questions
  2. 2. What you can’t be asked for? <ul><li>An interview is a conversation between two people, the interviewer and the interviewee. In every job interview, the goal is to obtain professional information. Protect yourself from legal trouble and embarrassment by avoiding the wrong questions while still getting to the root of the concern behind the question. Red questions are inconvenient and many times illegal, green questions are legal and many times convenient. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Nationality <ul><li>Rather than inquiring about citizenship, question whether or not the candidate is authorized for work. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Religion <ul><li>The interviewer may wants to know about religious practices to find out about weekend work schedules, but it's imperative that him refrain from asking directly about a candidate's beliefs. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Age <ul><li>Maturity is essential for most positions, but it's important that the interviewer doesn't make assumptions about a candidate's maturity based on age. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Marital and Family Status <ul><li>These questions primarily concern women with children, but they're applicable to everyone. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Gender <ul><li>The interviewer can inquire about the applicant's ability to handle the job, but don't ask directly about how being a man or woman could affect it. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Health and Physical Abilities <ul><li>Rather, the interviewer has to find out if the applicant can handle doing what's required. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Miscellaneous <ul><li>Avoid interviewing gaffes by sidestepping these questions about residence, legal troubles and military service. </li></ul>
