Petition Action

Introduce laws that require all businesses to respond to every job application

Petition Details

To change employment law to require all businesses to reply to any advertised job application. Also to give a valid and reasonable reason for any rejections of application so the person applying to use this to better themselves. For any response to happen within 14 calendar days of the application

Additional Information

The technology is now readily available for employers to reply quickly to any application. This will give the job advertisment some more rules and regulations to help job seekers rules to understand and know what criteria the employer should respond as. Too many jobs are applied to without any response to the applicant, this is a standard which is terrible and goes unanswered with no responsibility to good business standards.
