Interviewers and interviewees alike are often unaware that certain questions asked during a job interview are considered illegal questions.

The reason why these questions are considered illegal is to protect candidates from being discriminated against when applying for a job. These questions were made illegal as part of the Americans with Disability Act. In this article, we’ll cover what the illegal questions are, why they’re asked and how to respond.
