Illegal Job Interview Questions, And How to Respond
There are many questions during a job interview that can seem awkward. It's important for interviewers and interviewees, alike, to recognize which ones are unethical, or even illegal. Writing for The Financial Diet, Mary Parisi identifies 5 commonly asked interview that are inappropriate, and in most cases, actually illegal.
While noting that one doesn't have to answer these questions, Ms. Parisi appreciates that interviewees often prefer to respond, regardless of their inappropriate nature. For such cases, Ms. Parisi offers an alternative response to each question - one that addresses the nature of the question without actually answering it.
Here are the 5 questions.
- "Are you married/pregnant?"
- "How many children do you have/how old are they?"
- "Do you have any religious holidays you celebrate?"
- "Do you have any disabilities/what are they?"
- "Were you/your parents born in the U.S.?"
