Been asked for your pay slip? Legal Challenge

Employed job seekers possess important competitive information for the firms they apply to. Requesting pay slips has become a norm for unscrupulous recruiters, yet this practice can be legally challenged.

The South African Competition Act

Is it legit to hand over confidential information contained in pay slips when applying to a competitor employer?

The Competition Act prohibits collusion and price-fixing wages.

Sending a pay slip to a competitor means applicants divulge confidential information negatively impacting on a company’s right to fair competition for talent.
