Job seekers may think they're the only ones sweating the job interview -- afraid they'll say the wrong thing or answer inappropriately -- but hiring managers are under just as much pressure. There are a number of questions interviewers are legally not allowed to ask, but sometimes the parameters are not clear. For example, in an attempt to make a candidate feel at ease, the interviewer might innocently ask him, "What does your wife do?" Wrong! It's illegal to ask if someone is married, even using a backdoor approach like this. According to CareerBuilder.com, 20 percent of hiring managers admitted in a nationwide survey conducted by Harris Poll that they asked a question in a job interview they found out later was illegal to ask.

Ten interview questions that are illegal to ask:
  • What is your religious affiliation? 
  • Are you pregnant? 
  • What is your political affiliation? 
  • What is your race, color or ethnicity? 
  • How old are you? 
  • Are you disabled? 
  • Are you married? 
  • Do you have children or plan to? 
  • Are you in debt? 
  • Do you social drink or smoke?
