Interviewed a great candidate today and toward the end of the meeting, they disclose that they have a medical condition that prevents them from travelling... Felt like someone punched me in the gut...

Pardon my ignorance, but would not hiring them due to health reasons be considered discrimination in any way? And did they disclose this condition on their application?

Call HR.

If you’re interviewing today, that implies your ex-US, and no one here will have any idea what laws apply or how to interpret them.

No advice, but it's not discrimination under the law if it's a legitimate requirement of the job. (Not a lawyer....)

Hmm. I’m surprised someone with a medical condition that disallows travel would apply for an 80% travel job. Does it actually “prevent” or just “inhibit"

Sounds like HR didn’t screen properly

BFJQ - bonafid job qualification. In the US it’s why police and fire do not half to hire people in wheel chairs. It should be the same for travel.

Agreed that you need to disclose info to HR and partners. Not sure why the individual applied to a position that requires travel but it doesn’t seem like a good fit. What happens if they start, can’t travel so stuck on bench and eventually get let go due to low utilization, sounds like setting up for failure

Def an HR question bc although it's 80% travel, it could be possible for them to come back and say they could have just got staffed on work that didn't require travel (consulting does have that. I've asked to be remote for months now in a very niche practice and they have found me plenty of remote work)

It is an HR question, but I’m sure the 80% travel is clearly listed in the job description. It’s not discrimination. The Warriors don’t have to hire a great shooter in a wheelchair just because some people sit on the bench.

Agreed with SC1. There is plenty of Consulting work for someone to do remotely

How to handle... Do I bring it up to partner or overlook it? Feel like we shouldn't judge people on limitations, but travel is such a big part of our world... Sucks

I thought about that too - it was a casual discussion - 1st touch meeting

Please send this person to Slalom. This works for us.

Question for paid search experts who have big agency experienc (e.g. big 4, dentsu, etc.) - is it considered standard to use SKAG instead of STAG, and use alpha/beta structures?...even with the changes Google has made to phrase and exact match?

If you were interviewing someone from a small agency and they said they didn't use those types of account structures, would you think they were inexperienced?
