December 01, 2009
Dear Experts, Can an interviewer ask if you had children? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter:Q#387 Whether u have children or not has nothing 2 do with performing the job. This is not an acceptable interview question. (@DebraWheatman)Q#387 They can ask, but in most jurisdictions they cannot discriminate against you for this in their hiring decision. (@gradversity)Q#387 NO! Cannot legally ask about kids - considered discrimination. Yet, many don't realize this is illegal.
