You want to hire the best person for the job. What you don’t want to do is use a non-compliant job application that doesn’t include mandatory language — or asks inappropriate questions. Many businesses simply aren’t aware of which questions can be considered illegal to have on employment applications.
In the HRdirect Small Business Hiring Practices Survey, 91% of small businesses claimed they were somewhat or completely confident that their application materials don’t include illegal questions. Yet, when asked which questions are illegal to ask during the hiring process, only 63% owners answered incorrectly.
Let’s map out the biggest employment application roadblocks that could cause you to swerve into legal trouble.
