Applying for a job

If you are applying for a job, equality law applies to what the employer you are applying to does at every stage of the recruitment process.

Equality law applies:

  • whatever the size of the organisation
  • whatever sector a job is in
  • whether an employer is taking on their first worker or their hundred and first
  • whether or not the employer uses any formal processes like application forms, shortlisting or interviewing.
