PR dla Zagranicy
Some Polish recruitment agencies are illegally exchanging personal data, creating “blacklists” of unwanted potential employees, Deputy Labour Minister Stanisław Szwed has said.
“We have received information that recruitment agencies have created blacklists of people they … did not like during the recruitment process,” Szwed told Poland’s PAP news agency.
He said that the problem is one that is hard to investigate, adding that his ministry is considering different ways of preventing such activities.
Szwed also said he had received reports of some agencies discriminating against women.
“It is definitely discrimination if during the recruitment process women are asked if they are pregnant or if they are planning to be in the future. This is absolutely unacceptable.”
