Guideline for the Recruitment Industry and Employers: Complying with the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 in Recruitment

Access to employment is a fundamental right that everybody should be able to enjoy. However, discrimination based on characteristics such as age, race, disability, and parental or carer status can prevent some people from gaining employment, even if they are the best person for the job.

Discrimination can happen at different stages of the recruitment process, such as during advertising, short-listing or interviewing – importantly, it is sometimes not intentional.

This practice guideline is all about making sure everyone gives and gets a fair go in the recruitment process.
