Most employers strive for a recruitment process that is free of discrimination, both for legal purposes and because it’s the right thing to do. But confirming your process provides equal employment opportunity isn’t always easy. There are obvious forms of discrimination in recruitment, such as requiring a specific gender when there is no bona fide business reason to do so. However, there are also hidden areas of discrimination in recruitment that employers, including federal contractors, need to look to eliminate or avoid in their hiring process.
