Can a prospective employer take a photo of me at the job interview?
I went to a mid level admin job interview at a recruitment firm and they took a digital photo, just of my face. They asked my verbal permission but I didn't have to sign any waivers or anything.

well if you stood there and let them take the photo they can, if you were like no no and they did it against your will then you can take some action. i dont have any idea why they would take one though.
