Can employers ask for your date of birth on job applications and background check?

Show all answers
Post your answer

No they CANNOT. At most the job application can only ask if you are over the age of 18 and can legally work in the United States. The reason being is to avoid any form of age discrimination in the hiring process. The EEO is very clear about this. Date of birth can be given ONLY after the person has been employed for tax purposes. It is not necessary for background checks. The only requirement necessary to conduct a background check is the persons social security number and home address.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, I think most if not all states allow that. They can not however discriminate based upon age.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

The trouble is that many applications state on the form that the material can be used for background checks. At which point they need your age. So while they can't demand to know your age just to apply, by combining two forms into one they get to stick the age question back on.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

I'm pretty sure that they can... especially if the position requires you to be a certain age. (Example: If you'll be around hazardous equipment and need to be at least 18.)

They can ask on the application only if it follows the question are you age 18 or older.
Your date of birth is required on a background check.
