Be careful what interview questions you ask – you may think you are simply being friendly but then find you’ve breached anti-discrimination or EEO legislation. Any interview questions that will reveal the applicant’s marital status, age, religion, gender, race or sexual orientation are illegal. Here are some suggestions as to questions not to ask, but check your local statutory authority to be sure you are within the legal guidelines. 1. How old are you? That’s an obvious one, but what about anything else that dates them i.e. when did you graduate, how old are your children, what year did you finish school etc. – best to stay away from all dated related questions.
