Interviewing: How to Stay Out of legal Hot Water
Some interviewers ask great questions; others ask dumb questions; and, worst of all, some ask questions that can get them into legal hot water.
Every recruiter, hiring manager, executive, and department manager must realize that asking the wrong questions or making improper inquiries can lead to discrimination or wrongful-discharge lawsuits. These suits can be won or lost based on statements made during the interview process. To stay out of hot water:
Avoid these seemingly non-threatening questions.
Steer clear of questions that would be considered discriminatory.
Don't make binding contract statements.
Ask the right kinds of interview questions.
By implementing the behavior interviewing, all organizations - small or large, private or public, for profit or non profit - can significantly reduce their exposure to employment practices claims and increase their potential for hiring top performers.
