It is important to ensure that no job applicant is rejected
because of his or her appearance, colour, accent or foreign-sounding name. Employers
may wish to include a statement with all letters sent out inviting job
applicants to interview that they will require documentary evidence of their
right to work in the UK. In this way they can ensure that no job applicant is
singled out for different treatment on the grounds of race.
