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?
