USING GOOGLE MAPS TO DISQUALIFY JOB APPLICANTS
I was told by someone working HR in a major employer that they have been instructed to
google map the address of each job applicant, and if they
don't like the looks of the property or neighborhood, to disqualify the applicant, no matter what his or her qualifications may be. If this
mapping is being used industry wide, it would not surprise me why many qualified applicants are not being called in for interviews. Just another of 1,001 ways to discriminate against job seekers.
