Be confident that every manager in the organization is conducting interviews that are defendable in court! This updated video training program prepares managers for their next interview by defining what types of questions are legal and illegal to ask a job candidate. Because discrimination can occur without a manager even knowing it, this video reinforces the importance of following a structured interview plan in an effort to avoid spontaneous comments or questions that could steer into the job applicant’s personal life. Essentially, this video teaches managers the important rule of thumb: if the interview question does not relate to the job, don’t ask it!
This Law & Order-style video will add drama to your training session as viewers watch Virginia, a job applicant who suspects that she has been unlawfully discriminated against because of her gender. Her interviewer, Mr. Coleman, asks if she has children and therefore assumes that she wouldn’t be fully committed to the job. Realizing that this question based on her personal life was unlawful, Virginia takes her case to court. During the lawsuit it is discovered that Mr. Coleman acted biased even while taking notes throughout the interview, jotting down that she was "attractive" and "wouldn’t fit in here." Mr. Coleman’s lack of knowledge on how to conduct a legally defensible interview resulted in a costly expense for his company.
Viewers will learn how interviewing questions concerning age, race and religion can be legally rephrased to ask specific questions about job-related issues.
