in Discrimination and Harassment,Hiring,Human Resources

A woman seeking a position at a crime-scene cleanup company was asked during her interview if she had a jealous husband, and if she could work with all men. The woman was not hired and the company instead hired a man for the job.

The result: The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a gender discrimination lawsuit on her behalf.

The lesson: Stick to job-related questions. (EEOC v. Crime Scene Cleaners, Inc.)
