Special employee categories

Clio Springer

Editor's message: Employers need to pay particular attention to specific employee categories when recruiting new staff and take care to comply with equality requirements as well as the law concerning atypical workers such as agency workers and part-time and fixed-term employees.

Employers also need to be aware of the legislative framework in relation to other special employee categories, as part of their recruitment processes, including around job applicants with convictions and employing foreign nationals and young people and children.

In relation to job applicants with a disability, employers must comply with the duty to make reasonable adjustments during the recruitment process.
