Don’t Jeopardize Your Business!
Business owners, CEO’s, Entrepreneurs, Solopreneurs, Executives, etc. They all work very hard to build and grow their businesses and companies. Yet, over the years, I have seen time and time again these very same people put themselves in jeopardy of being sued due to unlawful/illegal interview questions.
In the quest to avoid making a bad hiring mistake, they ask illegal questions of the candidate and open themselves up to a discrimination lawsuit.
While we all want as much information as possible on a candidate in order to determine if they are a good hire and good culture fit, there are certain questions that you are not allowed to ask.
However, there are still ways to gather this information - by phrasing your questions another way - you avoid the potential of a lawsuit while still finding out the suitability of the person for your company.
Following are the most commonly asked “Illegal Questions” and their alternative, “Legal” way to ask.
