Illegal Interview Questions


Most of the candidates feel intimidated while facing an interview. Some questions, though seem innocent enquiries, must be avoided by an employer. And, as a candidate, you too have a right to refuse to answer any question that you find is irrelevant or illegal in nature.

An employer should refrain from gathering personal information of the candidate. Such questions can harm the reputation of the company. In general, a candidate cannot be asked about his age, religion, marital status, disability, nationality, race or ethnicity. (Note: Except defense jobs)
