illegal interview questions


American Said:

Yes you can’t ask those questions in an interview. We were told the only acceptable question to ask is if a candidate is legally allowed to work in the US.

Anything else could be perceived as discrimination and used by the candidate to sue the company.


Here you go: 


I wanted to ask this question.

Some say no H-1B

Some say no OPT CPT etc

Some say only USC or GC

Some say only US citizens(Indians what they meant).

How far it is okay in USA to discriminate candidates based upon the immigration status?

Some recruiters call and first question is, do you have a green card?

I suspect that these are fake GC interview calls.

Often staffing agencies sending emails with Jobs like this:

Below is the JD for the position, please have a look and let me know if you interested for the same.

Please share me the updated resume with contact details so that we can discuss about the position and submit the profile asap.

No H1 candidates.
