Legal questions

In the context of employment verification, legal questions are those questions that are non-discriminatory and can be lawfully asked to the candidate or referee. For example, the following questions will be considered unlawful in most interviews:

  • Are you in a same-sex relationship/ marriage?
  • What’s your ethnic background or religion?
  • Are you pregnant or planning to start a family?
  • Do you have a physical or mental disability?
