Why is it wrong to ask a female interviewee whether she plans to get pregnant in the near future? The position I was trying to hire for involved medium to long-term commitment, and I have no time to get a second woman trained and up to speed.
Background details: the position I was trying to hire for involved medium to long-term commitment, and I have no time to get a second woman trained and up-to-speed. Frankly, it's the kind of job that most men wouldn't want (mostly receptionist duties, but also some things that are more important). If I hire a woman and she gets pregnant 6 months later, I have to keep her position open when she leaves for several months on maternity leave, and to add insult to injury I have to find someone else to replace her in the mean time and hope that they work out (but only until the first woman wants to come back to work -- thank you CA labor laws!)
