The A-Z of legal recruitment

Recruitment: The Complete Guide


Dear Reader

  • Did you know there are 11 legal requirements for recruitment?
  • Do you know how the Employment Equity Act affects your job advertisement?
  • Do you know what checks you can legally conduct on an applicant?
  • Are you sure your employment contract includes the 16 clauses the law says you must have?

If you don’t have all of these aspects correct, you’ll be on the wrong side of the law when it comes to your recruitment process.


The legal recruitment process from A-Z



With Fleet Street’s new reference guide, Recruitment: The Complete Guide eReport, you can ensure every step of your recruitment is legal and effective. Yes, you might have a list of questions you ask in interviews and another company policy that tells you how to ensure effective induction... But now you can refer to just one guide for recruitment from A-Z.

Recruitment: The Complete Guide eReport will give you practical advice, tools, checklists and samples that cover every single step of recruitment. You’ll find out how to:

Choose the best recruitment method to suit your specific needs

You’ll get complete guidance on whether you should use internal or external recruitment and how to implement them. And find out what items to look out for when you deal with an external recruitment company so you don’t waste money or time on the wrong applicants!

70 questions to ask to get the most relevant information from your interviews

Discover everything you need to know to make the right decision every time. Find out about the applicant’s strengths, areas for improvement, ideals and commitment with these specific questions – all set out in an easy-to-follow checklist. You’ll have no doubts about the person’s ability!

Sometimes times are tough...

We’re still recovering from a recession, and you need to manage finances carefully. You can’t afford to waste money on hiring the wrong person. Find out how to overcome the six challenges and embrace the five opportunities for recruiting in tough times.

Develop a legal (and effective) job advertisement

Learn about the highly-effective AIDA principle to create job advertisements that get the attention of the perfect candidates, so you don’t waste time wading through the CVs of chancers. We’ll also let you know exactly how you must advertise in line with labour legislation.

A comprehensive checklist of questions you can legally ask a referee

Find out how committed and punctual the candidate actually is. Find out what management style he works best under. Find out how loyal he is and if he’s a team player. These are answers you want before you commit to hiring someone. Use the confidential reference checklist to get the answers you want. And follow the advice included to make sure your checks are legal!


The critical clauses you must include in your new hire’s employment contract

You employment contract is a vital document! You must ensure you develop it along the legal requirements. There are 16 clauses you have to include. And we’ve included the 12 others that will protect you as an employer. Cover all your bases when it comes to a new employee’s contract.

Information checks you can legally do on job applicants

Checking up on a job applicant is a contentious issue. You must tread very carefully when doing checks on medical history, criminal records or credit checks... You’ll end up in hot water if you make a decision based on information you found out through inappropriate means! Get 100% clarity on what checks you can do and when, including psychometric and substance abuse tests, so you can ensure you get the right candidate but still stay on the right side of the law.

You must send letters to successful and unsuccessful applicants

Only one person can get a job. But what about all the others you interviewed who weren’t successful? You must send both the successful and unsuccessful applicants a letter informing them of the outcome. Sound like a lot of hassle...? Not anymore. We’ve developed both letters, so all you have to do is insert a few company details and press send.
