Take home exercise

You are in charge of HR in a growing e-motorcycle company and the president has asked you to design an interview protocol for a new sales position. This job was created specifically to target the Chinese market and grow market shares there. You and the president have estimated that this job will require some travel (approx. 10%). After seeing a draft of the interview protocol, the president has asked that you add the following questions to the protocol:
  • What is your nationality? (Why? He wants to give preference to Chinese nationals)
  • Are you single? (Why? He wants an employee that has no ties and can travel freely)
  • Do you ride motorcycles? (Why? He wants someone who understands the psychology of riders)

Assess the legality of each question and provide a rationale for your answer. If you deem an answer illegal, provide a suggestion(s) to replace it.
