What is Unfair Selection?
‘Unfair Selection’ refers to the practice of forced redundancies of staff members without adequate reason as well as without any predetermined selection criteria.
It might also refer to the practice of selecting candidates for job positions using some criteria which ensure that candidates from a specific underrepresented community would not apply for the position at all. Unfair selection would be either intentional or unintentional due to other factors such as unconscious bias or overlooking an important rule when it comes to keeping everyone satisfied.
Similarly, when it comes to layoffs, there needs to be a set of predefined guidelines that is accessible to every employee to make sure that the company is not blamed for unfair selection.
