Ensure you know what you can and can't ask during an interview and avoid legal headaches for your company.
Interviewing prospective employees is not just an important skill for a company to master, but it also has to be done in line with applicable legal limits. No matter how much an employer wants to know about a candidate, there are limits to what a candidate can legally be asked. Employers who fail to ensure that their interview process meets legal requirements run the risk of having to defend costly lawsuits stemming from a perception that a past employment decision was premised upon legally inappropriate areas of inquiry. Understand the do's and don'ts of employment interviewing and gain practical advice to best train your employees in complying with all required legal rules and limitations in the hiring process.
