Are you hiring new employees? Make sure you don't discriminate based on these five reasons…

1. Race – Don't hire someone because of their race.

2. Gender – You can't turn down a woman for a job as a mechanic because 'it's a man's job'.

3. Political opinion – If you're an ANC supporter you can't discriminate against a job applicant who supports any other political party.

4. Trade union affiliation – You can't refuse a person a job because he belongs to a union or intends joining one.

5. Religion – If a Jewish person applies for a job, you can't employ him on condition that he works on Jewish holidays.

The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf reveals all 18 reasons. Make sure you're compliant by familiarising yourself with all of them. If you don't have a copy yet, click here now.
