Marital status

Marital status describes the population according to their civil state as single, married, widowed or divorced. It should not have any influence on an individual's work situation.

Employment decisions should not be taken on the basis of an individual's marital status. Applicants should not be required to disclose their marital status as part of a pre-employment inquiry. A pre-employment inquiry regarding the employment of other family members in the workplace may exceptionally be permitted to prevent nepotism.

Job responsibilities such as travel, entertainment or other duties outside working hours should not be used as a justification for discriminating on the basis of marital status. Full employment benefits should be provided to workers regardless of their marital status.
