What is Blacklisting?


‘Blacklisting’ refers to the practice of denying service or access to an individual or a group. It can be either a precaution or a reaction to some malicious activity by the aforementioned individual or group.


In the context of HR, blacking mostly happens in the form of denying employment to people who have engaged in illegal activities in the past or have been affiliated with political parties with a strong agenda or even whistle-blowing.


There have been instances of blacklisting of individuals by governments which effectively restricts them from working in any public sector organisations in the country; although these kinds of cases have been rare.
