Do you believe it’s fair for employers to ask job seekers for pay slips? We don’t!
and believe the Constitution backs us up!
We're challenging unfair employer power during recruitment.
The lack of pay transparency and demands for payslips and pay history places job applicants, particularly women and black people, at a disadvantage.
The Constitution states ‘Everybody is entitled to fair labour practice,’ PaySlipBanSA wants to lobby for fair labour market conditions for job seekers.
The problem begins when pay information is inaccessible.
Compensation and sustainability are essential considerations for job seekers. They need to know they’re not applying for a position they can’t afford to take. If employers and recruiters are ambiguous about pay in adverts, Pay Slip Ban SA questions how they entrench fairness as enshrined in the Constitution.
What do they do to prevent unfair information advantages and exchanges?
Recruitment is such an important labour market function!
What workers agree to in an interview can limit them for life!
The stories about men paid more than women and black people less than whites reflect labour market inequality.
You see, if the employer has more information, they have more power and can create the climate preventing job seekers from fairly negotiating pay.
Payslip Ban SA believes unequal power and information advantages allow inequality to enter the employment experience.
Employers claim they use pay slips to determine job seeker honesty,
yet the spread of inequality suggests otherwise.
Pay Slip Ban SA champions the cause of fairness during recruitment processes and wage negotiation. We believe it’s in the public interest to take up this up and lobby for a Really Fair labour market.
Help us create the awareness and process for change to close the inequality gap in South Africa.
