O’Brien Recruitment advertises without including pay and demands rival employer payslips from job applicants.
When a recruitment firm adopts unfair advantages during recruitment, they violate section 23.1 of the Constitution.
The right to fair labour practice in enshrined and nothing can dominate this right – or at least, nothing is supposed to!
Unfair Information Advantages
Withholding information about pay is an abuse of power.
Income inequality patterns are dominated by racist and sexist outcomes suggesting firms use payslips to spy on rival firm reward systems, to price-fix pay and poach employees.
When job applicants apply for jobs without knowing how much they will be paid, they become vulnerable to wage discrimination.
#payslipbansa invites readers to submit recruiter emails.
Please forward emails without any changes, we’ll protect your identity. Information is collected and used to document the massive transgressions occurring during recruitment.
Thank you for confirming your interview which is on <REMOVED>. Please can you bring a copy of your CV, ID, latest payslip and certificates (including Matric) or please email them to me. If there is anything else you believe I should need, please bring this with.
When you get here you will be required to complete an application (short – nothing to stress over). And once you have complete these we will spend time together.

Employers prey upon job seekers and illegally demand their payslips. When job applicants submit payslips or ‘current cost to company,’ they reduce their negotiating power in the same way you would lose power if you show someone your hand during a card game.
Recruiters and hiring firms justify the request for payslips and CTC as an entitlement yet cannot provide a single piece of legislation supporting this self ordained ‘right.’
#payslipbansa intends legally challenging firms insisting on unlawful powers. Once achieved, a legal precedent entitling other citizens to sue, will be in place.
