Application Forms
National Summary
A well-designed employment application form gathers relevant applicant information in a uniform format that allows employers to easily compare applicants' qualifications. However, in the process of gathering information, employers must be sure to avoid preemployment inquiries that violate federal, state, and local fair employment laws. Federal laws that directly affect the content of application forms include Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Many laws, including Title VII, require employers to keep application forms and other records of the application process for a specified time period, regardless of whether an applicant is hired.
