My mom passed away but I’m pretty sure she would think this was beyond stupid

like

The assumption that a mom is a good reference of character is just plain stupid. Maybe you and your mom hate each other, maybe your mom disowned you because of your lifestyle choices, maybe your mom is a complete psycho. Completely irrelevant relationship to employment, and an unfair hiring practice. Hopefully illegal.

Exactly, @R/GA. It’s bizarre and prohibitive. I hope there’s a work around for people who’ve lost their mom, have been adopted, don’t have a relationship with them for whatever reason, etc. because this is going to bum some really talented candidates out. I have a feeling this will keep people from even applying in the first place. It’s not a very welcoming initiative for young people with non-traditional backgrounds.

Is this real?? I'm assuming it's a gag. I can't imagine anyone wanting employees who can't get anything done on their own and need their Mom to baby them through adult life.
