When an employer is looking for new staff, it is important that they do not advertise, interview or hire people on the basis of characteristics that could be seen as discriminatory. For example, it would be discriminatory to include in a job advertisement for a building project manager that they needed local knowledge to undertake the job. This could discriminate against newly arrived migrants who may have had more than 20 years building project management experience.

This section will aid employers when they advertise, interview and hire potential employers to avoid the common pitfalls that leads to discrimination. It also helps potential workers so that they are able to  detect discriminatory behaviour in the employment process.
