Salemi suggests that managers also seek help from their company's human resources department. "I think a hiring manager should definitely be schooled on what's right and not right to ask, particularly because there are areas of grey. Let your HR department give you the basics on what to ask. Go online and read up on the Americans with Disabilities Act."

"Remember that no matter the candidate, the hiring process should be focused on the job, the skills each candidate has, and their relevant experience," Salemi adds. "Both managers, recruiters, and job seekers should always remember that."
