Employers baulk at recruitment data code

Employers
are concerned over the size of the latest data protection code of practice.

The
52-page report on recruitment and selection, to be published in the New Year,
gives job candidates the right to access notes made by the interviewer.

The
CBI and the British Chambers of Commerce are concerned about the length and the
simplicity of the code, reports the Financial Times.

David
Smith, deputy information commissioner, said that the extra length was needed
to provide clarity.

“What we have done is provide a lot more explanation and
made it more practically based. Plain English is not necessary shorter English."
