Could A Simple Interview Question Lead to a New York or New Jersey Employment Lawsuit?
by Christina M. Michelson on August 22, 2012
When hiring a new employee for your New York or New Jersey business, the interview process plays a key role. It allows the employer to meet face to face with each candidate and determine if they would be a good fit for the organization.
While the interview is often an employer’s best opportunity to learn about a job applicant’s abilities, there are certain questions that could lead to legal trouble. In fact, a large percentage of discrimination complaints arise from the interviewing process.
The rule of thumb to remember (and make sure all hiring managers understand) is that all inquiries should be job-related. In other words, you should have a business necessity for asking every interview question and be able to provide business justification for each question.
