Avoiding discriminatory questions at interviews

Posted on 7th September 2016

UK law prohibits employers from discriminating against job applicants because of ‘protected characteristics’ such as age, disability, race and sexual orientation. However, comments are still made in interviews which give rise to claims for discrimination – irrespective of whether the interviewer intended to discriminate. Speaking to Executive Grapevine, Homa Wilson, Senior Associate at law firm Hodge Jones & Allen, advises how employers and hiring managers can avoid discrimination in job interviews.
