Interview questions may expose company to lawsuits
#1 Jul 22, 2008
Great article Jamie. Thanks for outlining some things to remember for the small business owner. I run my own business and it is hard to remember what not to ask as some of the questions are just ones to "get to know" the candidate.
My business works to help people find jobs. Many times the job seeker is asked a variation of these questions with no recourse. They want to say: "You cannot ask that" but know it will impact their interview probably in a negative light.
I typically encourage my clients to answer the questions in a manner that explains their situation without too much detail. For example, if a question about relocating a family comes up, a good response is: "That won't be an issue for me." as this response doesn't send up any red flags.
