Anti-discrimination policy during recruitment and selection
The management of House of Work is aimed at giving jobseekers a fair chance of employment, irrespective of their age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, personal or religious beliefs, race, ethnic origin or nationality. During recruitment and selection, job-seekers are treated equally by being assessed solely on job-related criteria.
The purpose of this policy is to be clear and transparent towards the employees and third parties about:
- What House of Work understands by discrimination/discriminatory requests;
- What the position of House of Work is towards discrimination/discriminatory requests;
- Action by employees:
- What is expected from the employees how they act during their work, especially when working (in support of the business activities) around recruitment and selection;
- Where the employee can go for consultation and/or a report;
- Responsibilities of the employer;
Definition of discrimination
Discrimination is defined as: making a direct or indirect distinction between people on the grounds of age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, personal beliefs or convictions, race, ethnic origin or nationality. Discrimination is explicitly also understood to mean accepting requests from clients to make a distinction in recruitment and selection between persons on the basis of criteria which are not necessary or relevant for a good filling of the position.
Position of House of Work
House of Work rejects any form of discrimination. Requests from clients to take certain criteria into account during recruitment and selection are only honoured if there is objective justification. There is objective justification if selecting on the requested criteria:
- A legitimate aim. This means that there is a good -job-related- reason to select on the criteria in question when recruiting and selecting (an example of a legitimate aim is safety);
- Results in the achievement of the legitimate aim, the means is suitable to achieve the aim;
- Is in reasonable proportion to the aim, there is proportionality to the aim;
- Is necessary because there is no other, less discriminating, way to achieve the aim, the necessity criterion is met.
House of Work will not tolerate any discriminatory treatment of its employees by third parties. In this context, employees are also understood to be those who perform work under the management and supervision of a hirer.
Action by employees
Employees have their own responsibility to be alert to requests from clients that are discriminatory in nature, to recognise such requests and to ensure that they are not complied with. If the employee doubts whether there is an objective justification for a request from a client to take certain criteria into account in the recruitment and selection, or has questions about how to deal with a request, the employee can consult Anita van Wingerden. If the employee notices discrimination and wants to raise the issue, wants to report abuses or misconduct and/or has a confidentiality issue, the employee can contact Anita van Wingerden. If this does not lead to a satisfactory result for the employee, the employee can contact the director.
Responsibilities of the employer
House of Work is responsible for: Creating a safe working environment where people treat each other with respect, where there is room for constructive consultation and where undesirable behaviour is prevented and dealt with in whatever form. This includes ensuring that staff members:
- Are informed about and familiar with the policy. The policy is handed out on commencement of employment and gone through in detail.
- Have received proper instructions on how to recognise discrimination and discriminatory requests.
- Are prepared for the situation that they are confronted with a discriminatory request and know how to conduct and turn around the conversation with clients.
- The evaluation and adjustment of this policy.
