The Genuine Vacancy Test and Avoiding Unlawful Discrimination in Recruitment

Sponsored by - Gherson Solicitors

As of 1 December 2020, the new Points-based system within the Immigration Rules became effective. With this, the Resident Labour Market Test (“RLMT”) was removed. Instead, employers seeking to recruit workers from overseas must be able to demonstrate that the role being offered is a genuine vacancy, how do you go about showing this?

 

As a result of the new Points-based system and the end of the Brexit grace period, there are additional considerations for organisations to consider when recruiting prospective employees to avoid unlawful discrimination in recruitment and in the workplace.

 

Points of Discussion:

  • Genuine vacancy test in recruitment;

  • Home Office criteria in assessing genuineness of a role;

  • Discrimination and Protected Characteristics;

  • Types of Discrimination; 

  • Protecting your business and how to rely on the Statutory Defence;

  • Your employees' potential personal liability for discrimination in the workplace;

  • Questions & Answers
