Determine what questions can legally be asked of job applicants.

Put an “I” for Illegal or an “L” for Legal after each statement.  If you put an “I”, also provide the corresponding law that makes the action illegal. No credit will be given if the applicable law is not cited.  If you put an “L”, state why you feel the action is legal.  Each correct response is worth .50 points.
