Section 13-4 Obtaining information on appointment of employees

(1) The employer must not when advertising for new employees or in any other manner request applicants to provide information concerning their views on political issues or whether they are members of employee organisations. Nor must the employer implement measures in order to obtain such information in any other manner.

(2) The prohibition laid down in the first paragraph shall not apply if obtaining information concerning applicants' views on political issues or membership of employee organisations is justified by the nature of the post or if the objective of the activity of the employer in question includes promotion of particular political, religious or cultural views and the post is essential for the fulfilment of the objective. In cases where such information will be required, this must be stated when advertising the vacancy.

(3) The employer may not obtain information as referred to in section 30 of the Equality and Anti-Discrimination Act.
