Junior Member
Missouri - I am a hiring manager for a non-profit organization and I was recently advised by our Human Resourses Department that it is illegal for them to maintain unsolicited applications and resumes on file. In other words, if a position is not posted and an application comes in, it is disposed of and not kept on hand. I was not told why it is illegal, simply that it had something to do with discriminatory practices. Have you heard of this? Thank you.
