Compliance

Here are some key UK employment legislation considerations to keep in mind when implementing recruitment and selection policies:

  • The Equality Act 2010: This legislation prohibits discrimination on the basis of protected characteristics such as age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. Recruitment and selection policies must not discriminate against any particular group of applicants or disadvantage individuals with protected characteristics.

  • The Data Protection Act 2018: This legislation sets out the requirements for the collection, use, and storage of personal data. Recruitment and selection policies must ensure that any personal data collected during the recruitment process is done in compliance with this legislation.

  • The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974: This legislation sets out the circumstances under which an individual's criminal record becomes "spent" and can no longer be disclosed to potential employers. Recruitment and selection policies must comply with the provisions of this Act when requesting and disclosing criminal record information.

  • The Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006: This legislation requires employers to check the immigration status of job applicants and to only employ individuals who are legally entitled to work in the UK. Recruitment and selection policies must ensure that all job applicants are subject to the appropriate immigration checks.

  • The National Minimum Wage Act 1998: This legislation sets out the minimum hourly rates of pay that employers must pay their employees. Recruitment and selection policies must ensure that any job advertisements or interview questions related to pay are in compliance with this legislation.

  • The GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018: These regulations set out requirements for data protection and privacy. Recruitment and selection policies must ensure that all candidates' data is handled securely and with respect for their privacy rights.

  • The Disability Discrimination Act 1995: This legislation makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against disabled job applicants. Recruitment and selection policies must ensure that reasonable adjustments are made to the recruitment process to accommodate disabled candidates.
