Q. What Laws Pertain To Hiring New Employees?
A. State and federal laws prohibit employers from discriminating because of race, national origin, gender, pregnancy, age, disability or religion during the hiring process. They must protect the privacy rights of job applicants, including disclosing to prospective employees any background or credit checks performed as part of the hiring process. Employers must follow rules related to documenting immigration status and not discriminate against candidates over 40 because of their age.
