There is no one federal law that specifically addresses employment applications, although there are record retention guidelines under a variety of federal laws (see the Recordkeeping topic) and non-discrimination provisions for hiring in general (see the Discrimination topic).
Missouri law provides that it is unlawful for an employer to use any form of application for employment which expresses any discrimination on account of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, ancestry, age or disability unless based upon a bona fide occupational qualification.
