Illegal Interview Questions

You're faced with quite a dilemma if an interviewer asks you illegal interview questions. Illegal interview questions can be about your personal life, your race, your children and family.

Basically, they are questions that may have discriminatory implications. You're certainly free to answer an illegal question, but you should consider that your answer may not be the answer that the employer is looking for.

However, if you choose not to answer, the employer may view you as being uncooperative. After considering these options, you should also ask yourself whether you're willing to work for someone who pays no heed to the legal system.
