Questions That Sales Employers in the UK Are Not Allowed to Ask
During every job interview the employer's goal is to obtain important information whilst building a friendly yet profession rapport with the candidate. However, some questions can be just that little bit too friendly and go over the line of legality.
Please remember to protect yourself and your company by avoiding the 'wrong' aka 'illegal questions!' whilst still being able to gain the information required to recruit successfully. Many questions such as 'where do you live' can be asked in good faith and quite innocently but can cause you and your company legal nuisances and embarrassment
These articles will be able to inform you about what you can't ask and methods on how to turn litigious questions into legal alternatives.
From these pages you can find out why the following are illegal to ask during a sales interview and download our Staff Interviewing Guide to offer to your hiring managers prior to interviewing sales candidates:
- Questions on Nationality
- Questions on Religion
- Questions on Age
- Questions on Marital and Family Status
Questions on Gender
- Questions on Health and Physical Abilities
- Miscellaneous questions and conclusion
