Should you decide to check references, you should develop a standard list of questions to ask. That ensures that you gather similar information from each candidate—and that you avoid sensitive subjects that could lead to a discrimination claim. Reference checks should focus strictly on an applicant’s qualifications for your open position. Do not ask a reference to answer background questions regarding:
- Race or national origin
- Sex or physical characteristics
- Medical conditions or disability
- Marital status, pregnancies or family size
