    Can I appear for job interviews during pregnancy?

    Is it correct for me to appear for job interviews during pregnancy? what kind of questions can the interviewer ask me. I read somewhere that it is illegal for the interviewers to asking question about pregnancy.If they ask me how do I answer the questions or can i refuse to answer?

    Hi................,


    Suggestions------>
    * Do not worry about cross questioning.
    * You must give answers patiently and in cool manner.
    * If you are being asked about pregnancy then simply say that yet doctor had not checked me.
    * So you can not answer about pregnancy.
    * No one can force you to answer those questions.
    * And your job is not based on your pregnancy questions.

    Thanks

    Hello Aspirant,

    If you are in early pregnancy,you can appear for job interview.If you are able to work minimum 80 days after your selection & joining new job,you will be entitle to get 12 weeks maternity leave otherwise you may go on leave with loss of pay.This leave can be availed 6 weeks prior to your expected date of delivery & the remainig after its.You will be entitle to get full pay for your maternity leave.

    If the interviewers ask regarding your pregnancy,It depends upon the type of questions asked during the interviews whether to answer or not.If you see the question is right,you can answer it well.

    So see your position & move forward.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    Hi,

    I will not suggest you to sit for the interview.
    I am saying so because there are high chances that they will not hire you because they know that you'll take maternity leave sooner than later.
    Hence their purpose of filling up a vacant position will not be fulfilled.
    I will suggest you to start afresh.
    This will be beneficial for you too!

    Bye!

    Hello !!!

    if you have latest pregnancy than it is ok for you to go for interview.
    but if it is your above 6 month of pregnancy than it is better for you to stay away from the interview.

    now the question about the pregnancy ???
    dont worry, they are not fool enough to ask you how you got pregnant. ok???
    they will ask you that how can you manage the work force being pregnant.
    so you must have the answer of it.
    also they will ask you some question about the leave and work hamper when you will take delivery leave.
    so you must be prepared about the answer in the advance so that you are able to give the satisfactory answer.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
