WELL, IT IS DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE NATIVES:

Employer told not to post advert for 'reliable' workers because it discriminates against 'unreliable' applicants (Daily Mail, 26th January 2010)

Recruitment boss Nicole Mamo, 48, tried to post an advert for a £5.80-an-hour domestic cleaner on her local Jobcentre Plus website.

She ended the job offer by saying that any applicants for the post 'must be very reliable and hard-working'.

But when Ms Mamo called the Jobcentre Plus in Thetford, Norfolk, the following day she was told that her advert would not be displayed.

A Jobcentre Plus worker claimed that the word 'reliable' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.
