This paper presents the results of a study examining the procedures used by information systems departments when recruiting for tenure track faculty. An overview of the relevant legal environment is presented, along with a review of the current recruiting procedures used by the IS discipline. The results of the study indicate that professors use ineffective and inappropriate interviewing techniques during job interviews, including inappropriate inquiries into a candidate's children, family, age, and country of origin.
