Fair and Legal Hiring
Supervisors should not make hiring decisions based on anything other than bona fide occupational qualifications. By law, you cannot discriminate based on race, religion, color, sex, national origin, age, pregnancy, veteran status, disability, marital status, and genetic information. Supervisors should avoid trying to “read between the lines” to identify a candidate’s age, or other non-job-related information when reviewing applications or resumes.
