These Questions Are Illegal !!
Employers are not allowed to ask potential candidates a variety of discriminatory questions. Some of us may not know this, but here are some examples of questions that are taboo on an application, during an interview or in the workplace.
Here are few items that employers are NOT allow to ask a potential candidate.
1. How old are you?
2. Are you pregnant?
3. Do you take drugs, smoke or drink?
4. Are you a US citizen?
5. Do you have any disabilities?
6. Are you married?
7. What religion do you practice?
8. What is your race?
These questions, to many of us, are common sense, but people forget. Not only are these questions poorly chosen, but they are illegal under federal, state and many local laws. These types of questions can be used to discriminate against applicants and as a potential candidate it is in your right not to answer them.
