"Can I Ask That?" Legal Interviewing — the "TAKEAWAY" for Managers™ is a conversational, easy-to-use program for managers that explains the ins and outs of conducting a legal job interview—one that doesn’t violate antidiscrimination legislation. This concise program is both comprehensive and simple to understand, with short vignettes that illustrate and dramatize the material presented.
This 10-minute program concentrates on four key learning points and their “takeaways,” or sentence-long summations, to explain what one can and can’t ask during a legally compliant interview. It shows how to properly frame interview questions so that they don’t discriminate against any legally protected category of applicant, which would make the manager and the organization vulnerable to lawsuits; and it explains the importance of complying with the law in terms of respecting an applicant’s privacy and providing reasonable accommodation for those who need it.
