Sipho failed his psychometric test. Not giving him the job can land you at the CCMA

by , 31 October 2014
Sipho has applied for a job in your company. You're very impressed with his first interview. So you call him for the second part of the recruitment process, which is psychometric testing.

This involves a variety of tests including skills ability tests, IQ tests and emotional readiness tests.

After the assessments, you turn Sipho's application down because he didn't score high enough on the test for your requirements.

Sipho takes you to the CCMA because he feels you unfairly discriminated against him.

Read on to find out how the CCMA will rule the case, and what the consequences involved are.

****************************************

You can't turn down a job application because the applicant failed a psychometric test.
 
While such tests are not automatically prohibited, you may not use any of them to assess job candidates unless the tests have been officially validated by the Professional Board for Psychology.

Anyone wishing to use such tests would have to submit them to the Board first for a validity assessment. The Professional Board for Psychology can be contacted on (012) 338 9300
 
Note: You can't turn down a job application because the applicant failed a psychometric test. That discriminates against the applicant's population group. An IQ test developed in Europe has to take African culture into account and would have to be assessed for validity before use in South Africa.
