Advertising for workers

Advertising should not indicate any preference for applicants of a particular sex unless the preference is clearly justified as job related and necessary:

• Illustrations which suggest that the job is only for men or for women should be avoided.

• Applications from both women and men should be encouraged, for example by using sentences such as "applications from women as well as men will be welcome". In specific sectors or professions where women are under-represented, wording such as "women's applications, as well as those of men, will be very much appreciated " or " women are particularly encouraged to apply " may be helpful.

• Advertisements should state that the employing entity is an equal opportunity employer.

• Advertisements should not contain irrelevant job requirements which could limit women's applications.

• Selection criteria should be objective, related to the requirements of the job and consistently applied to all applicants; criteria such as appearance and physical characteristics should not influence selection.

• Advertisements should reach the widest range of potential applicants; they should, for instance, be distributed where potential applicants of either sex gather or will hear about the job.

• Qualifications required should be based on a current job description which accurately identifies the purpose and function of the job.
