Hiring new staff member for your dental practice can be a difficult process. It’s important to ask plenty of questions to determine who would be the best fit for your office, but there are certain questions you’ll want to stay away from. Not just to be tactful, but from a legal standpoint as well.
Below are a few examples of questions you’ll want to stay away from when conducting new hire interviews:
Many of these questions seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised at how easily things can slip out. Even innocently discussing spouses or children during an employment interview can land you in some trouble. For example, if your applicant begins to volunteer information regarding the above topics, acknowledge their statements, but refrain from offering your own personal information or asking any follow-up questions.
By avoiding these questions, you have more time to focus on gaining relevant, job-related information from a prospective employee.
