  • Recruitment

    The process of finding and hiring new staff to fill an open job position.

    At each stage of the recruitment process—from posting job vacancies to screening candidates and hiring the new workers—employers must be compliant with employment law. This means an employer cannot discriminate against potential employees based on their gender, race, age, marital status, physical or mental ability, pregnancy, cultural background, religion or political opinion.

    Employers must be careful with their choice of words when advertising job vacancies and asking questions at job interviews. Even if a potential employee is not hired, they can still submit a claim to the Human Rights Commission.
