FAQ / What Are Employers Allowed to Ask on a Job Application or in an Interview?

In a job application or interview, an employer can ask you about your criminal record, but in D.C., there are limits to what employers are allowed to ask or do.
ē If you are African-American or Hispanic, employers cannot ask you questions about arrests that did not lead to convictions. However, if you are applying to a high security job, such as working for the police department, they can ask you such questions. See Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; see also Reynolds v. Sheet Metal Workers, 498
