Why These Questions Are Illegal

So, what makes these questions illegal? First, they have no relation to the job requirements. Second, there are strict laws in place that prevent interviewers from asking interview questions that can be discriminatory.

Why Interviewers Ask Illegal Questions

Unfortunately, there are bad interviewers out there who will try to slip some of these questions in on purpose (hello, workplace discrimination). There are also some inexperienced interviewers out there who simply don’t know these are illegal questions and are just trying to make conversation. If you’re asked these questions, whether intentional or not, it’s best to be prepared so you don’t get flustered during the interview
