Employers are recommended to use consistent selection criteria for recruitment, promotion, transfer, training, dismissal and redundancy as well as terms and conditions of employment. These criteria and terms and conditions should be made known to all employees and job applicants upon request. Employers should make sure that interviews are conducted in a fair and consistent way and that there is no unlawful discrimination either in the process or in the outcome.
Employers should not solicit personal data from job applicants in a recruitment advertisement that provides no identification of either the employer or the employment agency acting on its behalf. Personal data collected from job applicants should be adequate but not excessive and should be relevant to the purpose of identifying suitable candidates for the job.
