The boss of a recruitment firm said she was told she could not place an advert for ''reliable workers'' because it discriminated against unreliable people.

Laughing Shocked

I dont think reliability falls within any of the 9 categories of unlawful discrimination.

On a serious note - when advertising a job do not describe the person you want describe the job you want doing and if necessary qualify the skills required.

Simple really.
