Question How do I ensure the questions on job applications are legal and acceptable?

Answer Department of Labor Employment Service Offices can offer employers a generic application as an example of an acceptable job application in this state. Job seekers should be aware that employers are not allowed to ask about ancestry/national origin, birthplace, dependents, disability, marital status, race, religion or sex. It is legal to ask if you are over 18, are a citizen, have been convicted of a felony or are a veteran.
