She said on the Social Status program on the Tonis TV channel that many recruiting agencies place restrictions on the sex and age of candidates, which is prohibited by the Constitution of Ukraine and international law.
“They stuck to their position in all our intentions to cooperate – with regard to age and sex in recruiting. We received complaints from unemployed people that they applied to such agencies, paid money, found jobs, worked for two or three months and were then told that they had not passed the probation period and had no right to receive wages. There is a tangle that has to be unraveled,” she said.
She said that the law on employment of the public passed by the parliament would solve the problem, as the law contains a ban on collecting fees for services of recruiters from ordinary citizens – only employers are to pay a bonus for the selection of staff for recruiting agencies.
