DID YOU KNOW? There are certain topics employers should do their best to avoid when recruiting and interviewing potential new employees, because they could either directly or indirectly reveal a protected status. Such topics include marital status, maiden name, spouse's name, spouse's work, sexual orientation, age or date of birth, sex (unless a bona fide occupational qualification [BFOQ]), height or weight (unless a BFOQ), race or color, color of eyes or color of hair, national origin or heritage, citizenship (though employers are allowed to ask if an individual is legally permitted to work in the U.S.), number or age of children, public assistance information, physical or mental disabilities, emergency contacts, dates of education, religion or creed (including associations or memberships), and union membership or sentiments.
