Not Fitting In?

Not Fitting In?

There are many reasons why you may not be selected for a job after what you thought was a good interview.

Some reasons maybe perfectly acceptable while others are definitely not. Being told you would not fit in with other staff is one of the non-acceptance reasons. A recent case at an employment tribunal  demonstrated just this.

In this instance, a middle-aged father was discriminated against when the NHS rejected him for a job on the grounds that he would not fit in with younger female colleagues, a tribunal ruled.

Despite being the highest scoring candidate in the application process, Neil McClements, 50-year-old father of two, was turned down for the post at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS trust in London.

The decision was taken heard the employment tribunal at Croydon, against a backdrop of the team he would have joined, was primarily  aged around 30 years old and all female.

Despite not performing as well as Mr.Clements in the interview, a  female candidate in her twenties was selected for the job.

Informing he had not been selected, his female  would-be manager  said it was because she would feel uncomfortable giving instructions to someone old enough to have an 11-year-old daughter.

The employment tribunal  panel, led by Judge Tony Hyams-Parish, ruled that Mr McClements was the victim of both age and sex discrimination and awarded him more than £7,000.
