a hypothetical teacher “back home” stateside is looking to teach english in asia. he responds to some ads from schools in china/taiwan, etc. and the schools ask for the applicant to supply a photograph and inquire about his age. eventually in the sorting out process the schools double check and ask about his skin color.
while the school is in asia, the potential teacher is being recruited in the states. employers asking request for photographs to be included in the applicant’s file is illegal under US law as is asking about one’s age and race during the job seeking process.
the potential teacher is in america. are the schools obligated to respect the employment laws of the nations from which they hire teachers?
