Leavitt Recreation and Hospitality Insurance (LHI) has released a checklist that will help park owners prepare “legally compliant interview questions.”

“The checklist outlines steps to help employers comply with federal and state fair employment laws that affect the process of interviewing job applicants,” notes the Leavitt team. “It also includes general information about laws that protect applicants against discrimination based on certain personal characteristics, disabilities and medical conditions, as well as laws that aim to promote equal pay by prohibiting questions about an applicant’s past salary or wages.”

The checklist is divided into four distinct sections:

  1. Section 1 provides tips for designing interview questions without regard to any applicable laws.
  2. Section 2 discusses how to identify and flag problematic questions under federal law.
  3. Section 3 discusses how to identify and flag problematic questions under state laws.
  4. Section 4 provides information about legal exceptions and includes guidelines for refining interview questions.
