I replied to an internet employment ad on craigslist. Among other things, the application requested my gender and age. Is this legal?

Discrimination law does protect the rights of applicants. It can be against the law to ask specific questions about gender, age, race, national origin, medical history, workers compensation claims and other protected areas.
To figure out if your discrimination situation is illegal you must determine:
1. If you are an employee protected from discrimination under the law.
3. If your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
