Guide to Pre-Employment

The Pre-Employment Guide is meant to assist both employers and employees to better understand the law regarding employment discrimination. However, in determining whether or not an unlawful employment practice has occurred, the presence of certain questions may be evidence of discrimination.

Employers should also check applicable federal regulations such as Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and affirmative action. By reference to this guide, employment discrimination may be lessened. Other questions regarding pre-employment inquiries should be addressed to Nevada's Equal Rights Commission.
