Employing non EU citizens in the UK?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. My mate and his wife are considering employing a Filipino girl as a housekeeper.
    Can his advert state "Filipinos only need apply" or will that be discriminatory and illegal?
  2. I would thinks so, however, they stand a better chance if they had the advert written in the filipino national language.

    Only a speaker/reader ofthe language would be able to reply, but then the replies may not be in English so they would be stuffed.

    They could also put in the advert that the ability to converse in a specific language is an advantage and that would stay within the law.

  5. When we wanted a Chinese maid the advert was written in characters and required the ability to speak Mandarin. It worked and without any complaint from plod etc.
  6. Assuming you are in the UK. Have a look through this little minefield before writing the advert.

  7. Don't advertise the post. Just go to an agency who specialise in finding work for Filipino housekeepers. They almost certainly exist and you won't be breaking any equal opportunities regulations etc.
  8. Why do they want males? Wouldn't a Filipina be just as good? Sexist pigs.

  9. ahhhhh clever!
