Can employment applications request an applicant's Social Security number?

While not unlawful to request an applicant's SSN, due to identity theft and general privacy concerns, employers generally should not request this information on an employment application form as an employment application is often viewed by individuals who do not have a need to know this information. An employment application should request only information directly related to an applicant’s ability to perform a specific job.
