Unfair Firms

Unfair Firms

Employers obstruct fair wage negotiations during recruitment

Unfair firms omit salary ranges in job adverts then ask questions about pay history and pay expectations without being upfront first.

Unfair firms demand rival employer payslips or ‘cost to company’ information, suggesting poaching, collusion and wage price-fixing.

Listed firms ignore human rights in labour markets. 


They do one or all of the following:

  1. pay is secret in job adverts, they don’t include a specific pay range nor refer you to a compensation policy tabling pay scales
  2. recruiters contact job applicants to ask about pay expectations without being upfront about the salary for the vacancy
  3. firms demand payslips and cost to company information from job applicants
  4. unfair firms remove applicants if they refuse to divulge their pay expectations, pay history and payslips.
Employer pay secrecy during recruitment places them at an unfair advantage when competing for talent.
