Rawson v University of the West of England ET/1400524/09
religion or belief discrimination | recruitment | selection and interviewing
Although discrimination because of religion or belief is unlawful, that does not mean that employers cannot discuss relevant religious issues during a recruitment process, as this case demonstrates.
Where individuals conducting a recruitment selection process are aware that one of the applicants has done a protected act under discrimination law, they must be extremely careful not to victimise the applicant when assessing his or her application.
