By asking certain questions like whether the candidate drink or smoke should be acceptable as this may affect health or morale of other staff members. Whether the candidate marital status is to record down future Childcarte Leave etc. When interviewing candidates , always ask appropriate questions. Most prospective employers/human resources management staff always ask the candidate's age before granting an interview. This is not receommendable as long as the candidate is healthy and meets the requirements of the job opening. A matured and experienced candidate is most likely to stay longer than a younger one who may most likely to job hop when an opportunity arises. Of course when you need someone to carry out heavy tasks/lifting or carry heavy loads, ten you will need a younger and stronger candidate BUT not for managerial/administrative functions.
Employer may ask you your age before fixing an interview appointment.
Prior to the offer, the employee was made aware on many occasions of the employee's intention to retain their existing consulting period. The employee was reassured that it was not a problem and signed the employment offer letter. The employee's notice period was 3 months, and just 3 weeks prior to joining, employment T&Cs was issued with new additional conditions for employment: 1) Disclose clients and obligations of consulting business, 2) Establish timeline to winding down, 3) All IPs, inventions, parents established post employee joining will be property of new company.
Should the employee choose not to accept these newly added terms, the employee may rescind their offer. Plus #1 is not a reasonably legal request at it would require the employee to break all NDAs signed. #2 goes against what was previously agreed and will result in loss of income. #3 Again, it would seem unreasonable for the company to insist ownership of UP belonging to another company.
I have signed a job offer to the company. I have resigned from my previous job provided that my work visa was initially approved. There were a legal split of the company, thus they withdrawn my work visa and re apply to the new company-however the worst part was the work visa was being unsuccessful this time. I was disappointed as I am unemployed. Appeal was also unsuccessful. They are trying their best to get my visa approved but i dont think i cant wait for another weeks and months. Do i have the right to withdraw? Please advise me. Thanks.
