Who can use this checklist

This checklist can be used by all employers.


When interviewing job applicants, it is often helpful to prepare an interview guide to assist the interviewer.

A guide serves the following purposes:

  • To ensure the interviewer obtains information that is required to assess whether each applicant is suitable for the job
  • To ensure that each applicant is treated in a non-discriminatory way by being asked the same series of basic questions.


As a safeguard to seek to prevent the interviewer asking questions that are unlawful or inappropriate.
In preparing the interview guide, Workplace will prompt you to list the questions to be asked of each employee, as well as the essential and desirable criteria for the position. Workplace will prompt you to enter the following information:

  • Essential criteria
  • Desirable criteria
  • Assessment of criteria.


It is recommended that interviewers are trained in relation to equal opportunity obligations, to ensure they do not ask questions or apply criteria which are discriminatory.
