As a reminder, all settings, including informal gatherings with groups and individuals who are not members of the search committee, are considered to be part of the interview of the candidate. Federal and state laws prohibit prospective employers from asking certain questions that are not related to the position for which they are hiring.
Questions should be job related and not used to find out personal information. Essentially, employers should not ask about a candidate's race, gender, religion, marital/family status, age, disabilities, ethnic background, country of origin, sexual preferences or age.
