What is your question?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have been working for a company for 12 years. They are closing our location in December -and they encouraged us to apply foe jobs within the company. So, i did this and now they want me yo take 25 minute personality test. The disturbing part is that before I get to the questions there is prefilled info with my name and gender. There is no option to not report my gender. If I was outside the company trying to be hired I don't think they can ask about mu gender. But, now after 12 years they can take this into accoubt when I am tryingg to move within the company. Is this legal?

The personality test would be legal, however if you feel that you may be discriminated against due to your gender, or that the questions asked you are discriminatory, you can file a civil rights complaint against the employer.

If you are not rehired or given a chance to work at the employers office, and you feel it was due to your gender, you should file a complaint with the civil rights office listed above.
