Step 4: Inappropriate Questions

State and Federal laws govern the interview process and inappropriate questions. These policies are usually available from the personnel or human resources department.  Interviews should be based on "job-related" criteria and questions based on those criteria.  If you've been asked an illegal question, talk to the personnel or human resources department or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Here are examples of inappropriate topics and questions:

Age:  What’s your age?
