Online Interview Training Course
Questionable Interview Questions
Many aspects of employment are heavily regulated in the U.S., but none more than the interviewing and hiring process. State and federal statutes and court decisions prohibit employers from discriminating against certain groups of people and from taking actions that impact those groups adversely and unfairly.
Employees involved in the recruiting, interviewing and hiring process need to be aware of the laws that govern the questions they ask applicants so that they can (1) avoid the questions that could get them or your organization into legal trouble, and (2) phrase their questions within legal limits to elicit the information the organization needs.
