Is it allowed to ask the candidate about his or her marital status, the existence of children and the corresponding future plans during a job interview?

No. It is forbidden for an employer to ask the applicant for information on pregnancy, childbirth, parenthood and family responsibilities.

Similarly, pre-contractual negotiations or any other form of preparation for the conclusion of an employment contract may not require the applicant to provide information, which is disproportionate to the private life of the applicant or does not relate to suitability for the job offered. Such questions include, but are not limited to, the candidate’s marital status, the existence of children and family responsibilities.

If you did not find an answer to your concern, you may contact the Estonian Commissioner for Gender Equality and Equal Treatment in a free format by sending an email to avaldus@volinik.ee. When contacting the Commissioner, the identity of the person shall not be disclosed and, upon request, anonymity shall be guaranteed.
