Occasionally, we'll review an advert and place it under review to assess its suitability with our job criteria - see www.dogoodjobs.co.nz/criteria and ensure it is not discriminatory.
We recommend you review the Employment Act and Government employment website for discrimination when hiring for more details.
The Human Rights Act 1993 also protects people in New Zealand from unfair discrimination in a number of areas – including in job listings. Read more on the Human Rights Commission’s website, including this handy reference guide aimed at ensuring equality and fairness for all job applicants. We suggest you review the Human Rights Act 1993 to review the section that relates to prohibited grounds for discrimination (section 21). There are some exceptions, so it is worth looking through the proceeding sections.
Please note: the same rules apply to discrimination for paid jobs as they do for volunteer roles.
You will be allowed to make changes to the listing to ensure it meets our criteria. You can edit and review your wording on your listing via your dashboard at any time (https://dogoodjobs.co.nz/dashboard).
