Labour Code declares only one general rule in connection with the limitations on background checks. The employee may be requested to make a statement or to disclose certain information only if it does not violate his personal rights, and if deemed necessary for the conclusion and fulfillment of the employment relationship.
The interview questions need to be examined case by case as there is no explicit list regarding suitable questions. In practice the employer is not allowed to ask about the employee’s family life, religion, sexual orientation, private life, political beliefs. Questions shall be related to the position that the employee applies for.
The employer has to observe the principle of equal treatment in connection with the employment relationship.
