What Can’t an Employer Ask in an Interview?

People ask us all the time, in an interview, can I be asked about my religion? Can I be asked about my national origin? The answer’s usually no. That’s usually an indicator of discrimination. There are certain circumstances where some businesses or companies have to ask questions or are permitted to ask questions. For instance, if there was a compelling reason to ask someone their national origin at an aerospace company, the employer could defend that case by saying this was something that we need to do for security reasons, but that’s a limited defense that applies pretty rarely in cases. So usually, your employer should not be asking you or your national origin, your sexual orientation, whether you have any disabilities at the outset.
