Not wrong because it's the normal result. But you can have good credit and be a bad employee. Moderator cut: snip

It is not illegal to ask someone's age. In fact, many applications have the "are you over 18?" check box. Even at that, it is not illegal to ask someone's age.

It is only illegal to ask if the person is a US citizen, not are they legal to work in the US.

An employer can ask for military records for proof of service. Cannot ask discharge status because that can reveal disability status, which is basically the employer asking if the perosn has a disability or not. An employer can ask if there is a bona fide occupaitonal reason to do so.

Again, blame employers for their discrimination in the past for these laws now. Employers brought it upon themselves.

Questions and Answers about Religious Discrimination in the Workplace
Religious Discrimination

I will let you read the above link to figure out what is wrong with your statement. But it seems to me you are interested in hiring people only of a certain religion, because you can easily either accomodate them, or not accomodate them based on an undue hardship it would impose on the employer, it really is that simple.

I think you should get different lawyers, or admit you ahve no idea what you are tlaking about. I have just provided refernces to counter your claims. You have yet to provide any references to support your claims. Tell me, what law firm is this lawyer with?

I didn't read your links but you must realize the law is not the same in every state. And what I listed is forbidden by either the Federal or State government. Sorry if you found something on the internet that differs. I just know the law and you don't it seems.

Thank goodness most states have common sense and allow credit checks by employers. This is only logical Moderator cut: snip. So really all you have to do is ask it they would like to volunteer to have their credit history used and if they say no then don't hire them.
