How Do I..

How do I ensure that I have a proper employment application?

Employers should create and maintain an application focused on whether the information being requested is directly related to the position being offered and does not seek any information that may be legally protected under state or federal law. As a rule of thumb, any request for information connected to a legally protected class (age, race, sex, religion, disability, etc.)  should not be asked.

Employers should also review their application regularly to confirm it remains compliant in every state in which they operate. To do that an employer should track law changes through groups like AIM to determine whether or not their application must be modified. 

Every time an employer updates its application, it should destroy all old blank applications to ensure a non-compliant one is not inadvertently used.
