In January 2013, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) published guidance and a research report on pre-employment questionnaires.
The research focused on the recruitment practices of employers relating to collecting information about a job applicant’s health prior to any offer of work being made. Such health inquiries are prohibited under Section 60 of the Equality Act 2010 unless they fall under a prescribed set of exemptions.
