Create Legally Compliant Job Advertisement

Key Points

  • The focus should be on the essential skills and credentials to the job rather than the type of applicant that is being sought.
  • Employers should avoid language that could be construed as indicating a preference for applicants on the basis of age, gender, race, religion, union affiliation and other characteristics.
  • Education requirements should be necessary for job performance or business needs. Employers posting requirements that are unrelated to their legitimate business needs may violate discrimination laws.
