Job Applicants vs. Candidates Manually Submitted by Recruiter

Anonymous - Mar 07, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

In addition to collecting applications from job seekers for a specific job requisition, our ATS allows our Recruiters to search for an existing applicant for any requisition and submit them to a different/new job requisition manually. These candidates would then be included in the data on which we report for this job requisition.

What are the legal implications with this? Should we always request that candidates apply directly instead of manually submitting them to a job requisition if we find them to be a competitive match for a new position?
