What are some examples of illegal interview questions?

I’ll never forget this one! I was in an interview with the IT manager of a small manufacturing company. He said to me “Are you married? I hope you are not because I know wives don’t like it when husbands work overtime and on weekends”

My jaw dropped! I couldn’t believe what I just heard! I was married, I think only a year or so at the time. I knew he couldn’t ask me this and if I answered YES I am that I’d lose the job (Yeah who would want to work for someone who would say that). Instead of calling him on it I addressed his concern without directly answering the question.

I said “I’ve been working in IT for 5 years now and I understand that the job requires having to work late and on weekends when there are critical deadlines and issues that impact production.”

Just for the record I was offered the job but I was wise enough to turn it down.

IMO, its not an illegal interview question, neither is it aimed to disqualify married candidates. It's primary purpose was to ensure and verify the maturity of candidates especially married or soon to marry ones and ensure they really understand what the job may demand.
