This may be in the wrong spot as I am not employed...yet...
I sent off my resume and cover letter for an admin possition yesterday, tonight (at 7pm) the guy rang and asked me to fill out a seperate application form that he was emailing to me... ok, no worries...
The form has a few questions that are a bit off but im not sure if they are illegal or just not 'the done thing'
It asks my marital status, if I have children to care for, if I am in part of a Union, if I drink and if I smoke.
The drinking and smoking I kind of get but the other things I always thought were points of discrimination.
Any clever HR hubbers know?
Editted to add: In the body of the email he did say that the form was optional (covering his a$$?) but I highly doubt I would get an interview if I refused to fill out the form
