Either in recruiting candidates in the first place or reviewing applicants under consideration for hire.  However, there is a surprising amount of legal regulations that may affect these practices. Recent lawsuits and compliance efforts by regulatory authorities demonstrate that employers should take appropriate precautions to avoid and be positioned to defend claims by unsuccessful applicants.
