How to Avoid Discrimination During Hiring

When you are looking for a new job, your Cover Letter and
Resume act as a formal introduction to a potential employer. These documents advise
hiring managers of who you are, your past experience and education, and how
you, compared to all the other candidates, are the ideal person for the job.

With your Cover Letter and Resume, you want to showcase the
best possible version of yourself and provide any information that is necessary
for you to be considered. You also want to ensure the details you disclose
about yourself don’t give an unprofessional hiring manager an opportunity to
discriminate against you. 

In this post, we cover whether it is legal for an employer to discriminate against you when reviewing your application, and a few areas of your Cover Letter and Resume that you can modify to avoid discrimination in this stage of your job search.  

Is it Legal to Discriminate as an Employer?

It is not legal
for an employer to do or say anything that can be construed as discrimination
on the basis of skin color, sex, ethnicity, religion, disability, marital or
familial status, and more (called the “prohibited grounds for discrimination”).

Discrimination can occur as an obvious prejudicial statement (for instance, if someone were to say they don’t hire women for a particular role because they aren’t strong enough) or it can be camouflaged and may sometimes seem unintentional (such as when an employer asks when you graduated and then uses this information to determine your approximate age). In fact, there’s a number of questions that employers should avoid asking applicants as they could be considered discriminatory if certain information—information protected by discrimination laws—is revealed and used to make a hiring decision.

The problem is that it can sometimes be difficult to prove
that you’ve been denied employment based on discrimination, especially during
the hiring stage. This is why you should do your best to give prospective employers
only what they need to consider your job application and avoid providing
information that could open you up to discrimination.

How Your Cover Letter or Resume Could Lead to Discrimination

Your Cover Letter and Resume are used to show a potential employer why you are the best candidate for a particular position in their company. Though employers should never use information that falls within prohibited grounds to make a hiring decision, you may be unable to prevent it from happening and, if it does, you may have difficulty proving that it did.

What you can do is tailor your Cover Letter and Resume so
that it doesn’t include details that could be used to discriminate against you,
particularly with your past or current experience, your graduation year, and
your picture.

Your Past or Current Experience

Understandably, you want to include all your relevant
experience on your Resume; however, if your past or current experience involves
anything regarding prohibited grounds (such as volunteer work for your local
church), you may want to try rewording the job item to help prevent
discrimination.

For instance, let’s say you’ve volunteered at your heritage
center for the last three years and have done numerous tasks that are relevant
and transferable to a position you are applying for. Though this experience is
great and those skills should be included in your Resume, you want to be
cautious about including anything that could disclose your ethnicity to a
potential employer (like the name of your heritage center).

Instead, candidates can use generic terms to describe a past
or current position. For instance, instead of using the name of your heritage
center (e.g. the “Portuguese Cultural Center”), simply use “Cultural Center”.

It’s not always easy or possible to use generic names for
places you’ve worked, such as a church or mosque, but do what you can in order
to ensure your resume is reviewed objectively.

Your Graduation Date or Picture

Employers are not allowed to ask for an applicant’s age or for
any information that may reveal their age. Because of this, it may be in your
best interest to remove things that could reveal or imply your age, such as:

  • Your graduation year, especially the year you graduated high school (the year you graduated can often tell someone your approximate age)
  • Your picture (though this can be a common practice outside of the United States, you should avoid including a picture as it informs prospective employers of your age as well as your gender, ethnicity, and other details that may fall under the prohibited grounds)
  • Your unrelated hobbies or extracurricular activities (certain hobbies or activities can imply your age, such as involvement in a college improv group may suggest that the person is part of a younger age group)
  • Past courses or certificates (in some instances, the date you received a past course or certificate can also date you; consider removing ones that aren’t relevant or removing the year of completion to avoid this)

Keep in mind, there are instances when being asked your age
can be legal, if the question is worded properly. For example, if a position
involves the sale of alcohol, the person who is hired needs to be above the age
of majority and legally capable of selling those items to others. In this
instance, it is legal for a prospective employer to ask an applicant if they
are above the legal age for their state.

Sending in Your Resume

Whether or not you make changes to your Cover Letter and Resume is up to you (they’re your Cover Letter and Resume, after all), but being aware of how certain details can be used against you is important. Although employers are legally prohibited from discriminating against applicants under the protected grounds, it isn’t always easy to prove discrimination has occurred, especially during hiring.

Tailoring your resume so certain details (like your age,
ethnicity, religious beliefs, and more) are not included can help you avoid
potential discrimination in the workplace. Use your judgment, and, no matter
what you do, be sure your Cover Letter and Resume showcase your best skills and
abilities for prospective employers.

Say What Now? Teacher Charged with Hiring a Hitman to Kill the 10-Year-Old Student He Allegedly Molested

While 36-year-old Deonte Taylor was awaiting trial on accusations he molested a 10-year-old student, the former teacher was hit with another charge after he allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill the boy.

via NYDN:

Deonte Taylor, 36, was accused of exposing himself to a 7-year-old student and putting his penis in the student’s mouth when he worked as a teachers aide at Lusher Elementary back in 2015, the attorney’s office said.

Charges were not filed and he went on to secure other jobs; however, the case was reopened three years later and he was arrested in November 2018.

At the time of his arrest, he was working at the Ferguson-Florissant School District. Following his arrest and the molestation allegations, police said Taylor was still being paid.

As Taylor was awaiting trial on the molestation charges, he and his accomplice, his boyfriend Michael Johnson, allegedly tried to hire a hitman to kill the child and his family.

Taylor now faces both conspiracy to commit murder charges and witness tampering charges, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office said Monday. He was already facing three counts of first-degree sodomy.

In a court appearance last week, Taylor and Johnson pleaded not guilty. Johnson faces two counts of conspiracy to commit murder and two counts of witness tampering.

Calls to the school district were not immediately returned.

Cops also learned that Taylor was HIV positive when he allegedly molested the boy, now 10. An additional charge of knowingly exposing someone to HIV was added.

A GoFundMe was set up for the alleged victim, who was not identified. The proceeds will go toward the family “who have struggled financially and emotionally since the original incident in 2015.”

They need to lock his nasty, murderous, ass ALL the way up. Forever.

Hiring A Siding Contractor: Contractor Checklist

Siding can dramatically change the look of your home. It can increase your home’s curb appeal and resale value, while also protecting your home from the outside elements. Finding a reliable and trustworthy siding contractor is your first step in upgrading or replacing your siding.

At Modernize, we frequently speak to homeowners about their home improvement projects. In our recent interviews, 90 percent of homeowners requested a checklist to help them find and vet contractors. Modernize now offers homeowners a free, digital Contractor Checklist as a simple, step-by-step guide to assist with your siding project.

How to Find a Reliable Siding Contractor

If you are looking to improve the outside of your home —or replace damage caused by weather, rot, or warping— a trustworthy siding contractor is critical. You will need to find a contractor you can trust— a local professional who can get the job done quickly:

    • Ask trusted sources (friends, family, and neighbors) for a referral.
    • Contact your local Better Business Bureau.
    • Connect with trusted siding contractors in your area with Modernize.

Vet Your Siding Contractors

It’s important to find a reliable siding contractor so that your repair or replacement can be done as quickly as possible. To determine the best professional fit for your siding project:

  • Request quotes from three to four contractors in your area.
  • Visit the website of each contractor.
    • Is it updated and professional looking?
  • Explore the customer reviews for each contractor.
    • Are they mostly positive? Consider negative reviews and responses.
  • Ask each siding contractor on the phone the following questions:
    • How long have you been in business?
    • How much experience do you have with siding repair or installation?
    • What is your project estimate?
    • Can you provide a list of references?
    • Can you provide proof of insurance for personal liability, worker’s compensation, and property damage coverage?

Meet With Your Top Siding Contractors

After obtaining three or four written estimates and vetting each of your potential contractors, meet in-person with your top contractors to review project-specific details and expectations. We have created a free worksheet to help homeowners compare contractors. Be sure to discuss the following with each contractor:

  • Ask for proof of insurance, which should provide their insurance company name, policy number, and policy limits.
  • Discuss who will manage warranty details and responsibility.
  • Make sure to get a fixed price before signing a contract.

home siding costs

Be Aware of Warning Signs

Unfortunately, there is a small percentage of contractors who are not honest professionals. The best way to avoid scams is to choose a local, trusted siding contractor. You can confirm this by checking their physical business address and validating their licensing.

Here are additional warning signs to keep in mind:

  • Avoid contractors who request the entire project cost, or large cash deposit, up front.
  • Avoid anyone who pressures you to sign a contract immediately.
  • Be wary of any outliers in your quotes. All siding estimates should be relatively similar unless the material type is significantly different.

Prepare for Your Final Siding Contractor Meeting

At the final meeting, there a few steps to go over before the siding contractor begins your project.

  • Reconfirm your initial quote.
  • Agree upon a payment plan.
  • Obtain a paper trail of the following:
    • Your contract
    • Project plans
    • Order changes
    • Bills and invoices
    • Proof of insurance and/or permitting, and
    • Contractor correspondence

The Modernize Contractor Checklist will help you vet a trusted contractor, so you can relax knowing your siding project is in good hands. You can access the interactive checklist by visiting the Modernize Homeowner Portal or by downloading it here.

When is it worth hiring a tour guide?

ADVERTISEMENT


Traveling the world and exploring the globe’s different cultures and cities really is something magnificent. It’s a way to step out of your bubble and expand your horizon by experiencing and seeing new things. You can explore the pyramids of Egypt, the amazing mountains of Machu Picchu in Peru, or Dubai’s spectacular skyscrapers. Unfortunately, we are not all natural explorers. Some of us have a hard time finding our way around a foreign city.

The streets and signs may lead you into a never-ending labyrinth. Even in this digital age where we can access any information, getting around and finding those hidden and beautiful spots to visit might still be very difficult. So why not hire a tour guide? It might sound old-fashioned, but tour guides really are the cheapest and best way to get yourself around a foreign city without having to walk those extra miles when you get lost, or spending an ungodly amount of money on expensive fares.

See the best sites

A tour guide is usually a well-rounded local who is familiar with every corner of the city you are visiting, and thus, is able to show you the most exclusive and unique places that Google probably doesn’t know about. You see, a local tour guide develops a natural skill of knowing the exact location of places that are truly embedded in the culture, and that might not be as “touristy.” We’re talking about places that aren’t crowded with tourists, overly expensive gift stores, or full of high-end cameras flashing you in the face. Instead, a tour guide will be able to introduce and guide you to the most interesting and sought after places a tourist could ever wish to visit that truly represent the culture.

They know the language

This is especially true when you are traveling across the world to a city where the people might not speak the English language very well. If you can’t communicate with the locals and ask questions, you’ll probably stick around the same center-city streets and see the same old buildings that every other traveler sees. Instead, invest in a tourist guide that not only takes you to the best places, but that is also able to answer any questions or concerns you might have during the trip.

They can answer your questions

Feel like asking when that building was built or what it was used for back in the day? Ask the tour guide! Don’t underestimate the value of having a tour guide who can answer questions and discuss concerns that are better off discussed, than ignored. This is even more important when you’re traveling alone. There are always great people in tour groups with whom you can bond and share experiences. You might make new friends and travel companions for your next destination!

We tend to rely so much on our smartphones and wi-fi to access for information about the “best hotels” and “5-star restaurants” in the city, that we ignore the most resourceful and insightful option we have, a tour guide.

Military Spouse Looking for a Job? Walmart Announces Preferred Hiring

Military spouses: Walmart would like to thank you for your service with a job.

The retail giant has announced it will give hiring preference to military spouses, who face the added burden of frequent relocation due to military transfers and deployments.

While the rest of the nation enjoyed an unemployment rate well under 5% in 2017, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates military spouses and spouses of recent veterans faced a 16% unemployment rate for the same year.

Walmart previously offered military spouses and veterans the ability to transfer from one of its Walmart or Sam’s Club locations to another, but the company will now give hiring preference to any military spouse with a current Uniformed Services Identification Card.

This initiative comes five years after the company launched its Veterans Welcome Home program, which pledged to hire 250,000 military veterans by 2020.

Snag a UPS Seasonal Job at a Nationwide On-Site Hiring Event on Oct. 19

UPS is calling it Brown Friday.

That’s the term the company is using to describe its hiring bonanza prior to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday shopping sprees.

The shipping company says it will hire 40,000 full- and part-time workers at 170 job fairs nationwide on Oct. 19.

We previously reported that UPS was hiring 100,000 seasonal workers this year, so it looks like the brown jacket brigade is attempting to recruit a large share of its seasonal workforce in one day.

The hiring events are split into east and west regions, and applicants have the chance to receive employment offers on the spot.

The seasonal positions are primarily package handlers and drivers. Over the last three years, 35% of seasonal package handlers were hired on for permanent positions, the company notes.

Can’t make it to the hiring event? You can apply online at UPSjobs.com.

The company touts that permanent jobs — including part-time — come with health care and retirement benefits, as well as tuition assistance in some locations.

Dollar Tree and Family Dollar Plan to Hire 25K at Oct. 17 Hiring Event

The chain of discount stores known for saving everyone a few dollars is looking to put dollars in people’s pockets.

Dollar Tree, Inc. is hosting its third annual nationwide hiring event on Oct. 17 with plans of hiring 25,000 new associates.

Interviews will be held at every Dollar Tree and Family Dollar store in the U.S. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. The company currently has over 15,000 locations and can be found in all 48 contiguous states.

Both full- and part-time roles are available, including positions such as store manager, assistant store manager, cashier and stocking associate. And, of course, the company is jumping on the seasonal hiring train, so temporary roles for the holidays are open.

The job listings don’t specify pay rates, but Glassdoor offers some insight: Store managers earn an average of $ 44,806 a year, assistant managers earn an average of $ 41,205 a year, and cashiers and stockers earn an average of $ 8.00 per hour.

The company’s benefits program includes a 401(k) plan, medical plans, paid time off, a wellness program, life insurance, disability insurance and an employment assistance program aimed at maintaining a positive work-life balance.

A Dollar Tree press release says there is potential for new employees to be promoted into a higher role later on, adding that in 2017 nearly 40,000 associates moved up the company’s  ladder.

This is a one-day only hiring event, but don’t get too stressed if you can’t make it in person. Interested applicants can also apply online at www.dollartree.com/careers or www.familydollar.com/careers.

If you do plan on attending the event, here are some tips on how to stand out from the competition. And while you’re there, maybe pick up some cheap, Halloween goodies so you don’t find yourself in a decimated candy aisle at 8 p.m. on Oct. 31.
