Recruitment responsibilities for employers

As an employer, it is your legal obligation to avoid discrimination when you recruit workers.

Under Victorian and federal anti-discrimination laws, a person has a right to be appointed to a position if they are the best person for the job, regardless of their background or personal characteristics

Each step of the recruitment process should be non-discriminatory. This includes:

advertising the position

conducting interviews and pre-employment tests

selecting the preferred candidate.

The application process should be open and accessible, and not present barriers that could discourage people from applying. Employers may also need to consider making reasonable adjustments to the workplace to support a person with a disability or impairment.
