  • Fee to Apply for a Job

    Hi All

    I know it's not legal to charge someone a fee to apply for a job, but research (such as CAB) only throws up Recruitment Agencies not being allowed to charge? I need to show that nobody can.

    Can anyone point me at the legislation?

    @Ula or @Diana M perhaps?

    My posts on this forum are offered based on my experience dealing with a variety of life events. I have no formal legal training and if in doubt take professional legal advice or contact the CAB. If you follow anything I write on this forum you do so at your own risk and I accept no liability for any loss, costs or other outcomes.

    I do not come on here in the evening, at weekends or on public holidays.

    Hi [MENTION=104499]jaguarsuk[/MENTION] think this is what you need. Employment agencies and employment businesses are, as a general rule, prohibited by the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and the Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003, from charging or seeking to charge work-seekers for the service of finding or seeking to find work for them. However, there are some exceptions to this general rule such as actors, sports professionals, certain type of film crew.
    I do my best to provide good practical advice, however I do so without liability.
    If you have any doubts then do please seek professional legal advice.

            Sorry, I missed your earlier tag.

            Why do you need to show that "nobody" can charge a fee for applying for a job?

            Has this happened to you and did you pay?
