ONLINE INTERVIEW TRAINING COURSE
Interview Questions Considered Questionable
U.S. companies face perhaps no stricter employment regulations than those dealing with interviewing and hiring. The goal of these regulations — based on both state and federal statutes and court rulings — is to prevent employers from discriminating against certain groups of people and from taking actions that impact those groups adversely and unfairly.
Anyone involved in the recruiting, interviewing and hiring process must be acutely aware of the laws that govern the questions they can lawfully ask applicants. Proper training is essential for these individuals to help them avoid asking questions that can lead to legal problems, and to phrase their questions within legal limits to gather the relevant information a company needs.
