Boston Globe Quotes MBJ Attorney On Proper Employee Interview Questions; Employer Inquired About Applicant’s Age

The Boston Sunday Globe’s Job Doc quoted MBJ attorney Dan Field recently in a column about an employer’s inquiry into a job applicant’s age (see the Boston Sunday Globe of 8/12/07). The article discusses when it is appropriate and lawful for an employer to ask a prospective employee about her age, and it outlines potential legal liability when such an inquiry is improperly made.

The Globe Job Doc column appears weekly in the Boston Works section of the Boston Globe as well as on the website.  The Job Doc responds to a variety of reader questions about employment issues and provides guidance on the law covering the workplace.  Dan has been quoted frequently in the column.
