Employee Issue:

Questions an Interviewer Cannot Ask

All questions asked in a job interview should relate specifically to the position and the qualifications of the applicant. Interviewers should not ask questions about an applicant's personal information, including race, color, sex, religion, national origin, birthplace, age, disabilities, and marital stauts. Not hiring an individual based on any of these factors is considered discrimination.

If you feel that you have been discriminated against while applying for a job, an attorney can help you file a charge of discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
