Moreover, there are cases of refusal of employment of pregnant women,” — said in the explanatory note to the draft law.
The authors of the bill believe that some of the data about the personal life can affect the decision on admission to work, while professional quality sidelined.
The bill provides for the introduction of a ban on questions about national or political affiliation or place of registration. In addition, under the ban can be issues concerning relationships, family, health and salary level in the same place of work.
If at the interview the person will ask similar questions, he may not answer, and this may not be cause of denial of employment.
