8 Things Employers Can’t Ask You During a Job Interview
Investopedia put together this list of eight questions that are totally out-of-bounds in a job interview. So remember them because if an employer asks you one and doesn’t hire you, at least you can make some money by suing them, right? I know you’re so desperate to get a job that you would answer anything, even the size of your bra…But in case you want to know
#1.) How old are you? They can only ask if you’re over 18. Any other questions fall under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.
#2.) Are you married? They can’t even try to figure it out by asking “Do you prefer Mrs. or Miss?”
#3.) Are you a U.S. citizen? They can’t find out your citizenship status until after they hire you and have you complete an Employment Eligibility Verification form.
#4.) Do you have any disabilities?
#5.) Do you take drugs, smoke or drink? Whether they’re trying to figure out if you’re a health risk . . . or if you’d be a fun time at happy hour . . . these questions are out-of-bounds.
#6.) What religion do you practice?
#7.) What is your race?
#8.) Are you pregnant?
