Summary

  • Adherence to a uniform interview and selection process minimizes liability for discrimination claims.
  • Wyoming's antidiscrimination law follows the federal statute. Hence, questions disallowed under federal law should be avoided in Wyoming. See Wyoming Antidiscrimination Law.
  • Questions regarding tobacco use should be avoided in interviews and applications. See Smokers' Rights.
  • A Wyoming-specific disclaimer in application materials will help preserve at-will employment status. See Applications.
  • Before making promises during job interviews, Wyoming employers should be aware that state law recognizes implied contracts of employment. See Implied Contracts.
