When you're trying to recruit the best possible talent, it seems to be common sense that you might want to post the job description on certain websites or with language that will attract the demographics you think will be the best fit for the job.
But can this land you in legal hot water?
A recent lawsuit alleged that T-Mobile US and Amazon discriminated against older job seekers by targeting their ads on Facebook for a younger demographic. The prosecution argued that because they were unable to see the ads targeted towards young professionals (under 40), they were unable to apply for the job, and that the practice violated the ADEA (Age Discrimination Employment Act).
The practice of microtargeting - selectively targeting certain Facebook or other social media users with age or geographic limits - clearly makes it easier for recruiters to narrow the field of applicants. However, employers must ensure they avoid costly lawsuits and abide by federal law.
