Q. If we don’t have a job opening, are we required to hand out applications to anyone who asks? Or can we just say that we’re not taking applications at this time?
A. You can say that you are not taking applications, provided that your consistent practice is to accept applications only when there is a specific opening. In other words, you should not allow only certain individuals to submit applications. Otherwise, you risk a discrimination claim from someone who is denied the opportunity.
