Four tips to ensure your recruitment policy and procedures are EE compliant…
First and foremost, whatever you do, don't discriminate in your recruitment and selection policy!
Any form of direct discrimination in your recruitment policy means that you'll be falling way outside the legal boundaries of the Employment Equity Act.
This is a sure way to get into big trouble, with even bigger fines coming your way. So avoid any form of direct discrimination in your recruitment policy
Ensure that all recruitment and selection is in line with your Employment Equity Plan.
For example, if you know that you are required to have a certain percentage of employees, from designated groups, in your company, then you must state this in your recruitment and selection plan so that you know which employees to include.
Ensure that your job application forms standardise the information you receive from prospective employees.
This is so that you can avoid the possibility of unfair discrimination.
Only use background checks to clarify information which has been provided to you by job applicants, and never to discriminate against potential employees.
