Cost of poor Recruitment Practices!

Recent cases at Industrial tribunals, show businesses facing fines of £4000 - £70,000 for poor Recruitment Practices!

Serial Litigator sues 22 Accountancy Firms!
NI Age Discrimination case costs business £70,000

There are hidden dangers throughout the whole Recruitment Process:
1.     Advertisement
2.     Short listing for interview
3.     Interview questions
4.     Selecting the successful candidate
5.     Obtaining references
6.     Rejection letters
7.     Record Keeping
8.     Job Description / Person Specification
9.     Contracts of Employment

All of these areas must be carried out within the legislative guidelines and are all open to Discrimination and large Industrial Tribunal cash payouts should any unlawful process be carried out.  


Don’t leave yourself wide open to claims from unhappy candidates who were not selected for your JOB!

ü      Create a Process that will provide fairness and consistency for all applicants
ü      No candidate should be subject to any special, different, or additional consideration or process
ü      Plan well ahead of each step in the process to provide fairness and consistency
ü      Ensure those Staff involved in the process are able to confidently make rationale, legal decisions along the way

A process based upon these principles will produce not only a slate of highly qualified candidates, but it will provide legal justification for the result as well!
