Illegal Employment Questions;As part of the hiring process, job seekers will complete applications for employment and submit them to the hiring company for consideration. Employers considering an applicant for a position will often meet with the applicant in person, and/or over the phone to assist in the selection process. During this process, information is gathered about the applicants, which includes extensive information about the applicant?s background, in order for the hiring company to make an informed decision when selecting a candidate that is the best fit for the position and for the company.;During the hiring process employers need to be mindful of the questions they ask job applicants. Certain questions may disclose information about an applicant that is not job related and possibly give preference to one candidate over another, or potentially discriminate against a job applicant. For this week?s written assignment let?s look at the employment questions that are considered ?illegal? and so inappropriate to ask.;Go to a search engine such as Google, http://www.google.com, or Ask Jeeves, http://www.ask.com, and search for "illegal employment questions".;From the search results complete the following assignment;List five examples of illegal employment questions.
