7 in 10 candidates asked 'inappropriate' questions

Recruiting the best candidate for the role is crucial. Many job interviews involve asking candidates specific questions to gauge their suitability to the job, measure how well they have prepared for surprise interview questions and how well they would likely fit into the business.

While these interview questions play an important role in the hiring process, it seems that there are limitations around what recruiters can ask candidates before it is deemed inappropriate or illegal.
