Discriminatory recruitment practices in employment

IES, along with IFF Research and COMPAS, was commissioned by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) to carry out research designed to improve understanding of employer behaviour and practices when recruiting British and migrant workers with the right to work in Great Britain. The research took the form of a literature review, a survey of employers and recruiters, and 35 qualitative interviews with employers, migrant workers and UK workers.

The study resulted in a report for EHRC: Recruitment in Britain: Examining employers' practices and attitudes to employing UK-born and foreign-born workers
