Non-discriminatory job applications are crucial to promoting fairness, diversity, and equal opportunities in the workplace. To be accepted for publication on the AD Guild website, advertisements must comply with the criteria and guidelines below to ensure non-discrimination and adherence to legal standards:
AD Guild reserves the right to reject any job advertisement that does not comply with the submission rules outlined in this policy. Reasons for rejection may include but are not limited to non-compliance with non-discrimination principles, or failure to meet genuine occupational requirements.
Submission rules should follow the following guidelines.
Job advertisements must not discriminate based on age, race, colour, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, relationship status, disability, or any other protected status.
Clearly distinguish between essential job requirements and preferred qualifications. Ensure that the listed requirements are directly related to the job duties and do not disproportionately exclude certain groups.
Use inclusive language in job descriptions and application materials. Avoid gender-specific terms and stereotypes that may discourage individuals from diverse backgrounds from applying.
Clearly communicate the company's commitment to providing reasonable accommodations for applicants with disabilities. Include contact information for requesting accommodations in the application process.
