I was perusing a well-known job board and saw a listing for a Server position for a music venue in CA. The posting went on to describe the position and requirements (all pretty standard), and then at the very bottom stated the following:
PLEASE SEND A PICTURE OF YOUR SELF FOR ANY POSITION YOU ARE INTERESTED IN, IF YOU DO NOT SEND ONE YOU WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
I was under the impression this was only allowed if you're involved directly in the entertainment industry (such as, say, acting), but is this actually illegal ... or merely highly unseemly?
Personally, I'm not even involved in the food industry, but living in an entertainment-related city, I do tend to see postings like this a lot. I'd love to know what the legal specifics regarding this sort of thing is.
