Employers fail to grasp recruitment laws

By November 8, 2016Uncategorized

The results of a survey undertaken by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), suggests employers are ill-informed of the current law on recruitment. According to the report, only 39% of businesses are aware that it is illegal to advertise a vacancy solely in a foreign language, where the foreign language is not required to perform the duty. In addition, less than half of employers checked employees had the right to work in the UK prior to hiring them, while 9% of employers believed that foreign workers were not entitled to the same wage as British ones.
