Applicant's Birth Date
I just had an interesting situation happen and I was wondering what everyone's take might be. Our Executive Assistant was booking travel for an applicant to travel to our corporate office. When purchasing the ticket she was prompted by the airline to enter the person's birth date. Apparently airlines are being made to get this information effective 1/1/2010 but some airlines have introduced the policy ahead of time.
Not thinking anything about it, our Exec. Asst. emailed the applicant to get her birth date. The applicant provided the information along with a note saying that it was illegal for us to ask this information. After some initial brainstorming the best current idea we've got is that all applicants will have to purchase their own tickets and submit for reimbursement.
