On the next #JobAdviceSA chat we are going to be joined by Leonie Hall, the Founder of PaySlipBanSA to discuss the discrimination and inequality that results from employers not disclosing the salary for a position in job adverts and demanding that jobseekers provide their payslips when they are applying for a job.
According to PaySlipBanSA
“Wages are unfairly negotiated as employers are anti-competition in labour markets, they don’t compete for talent and suppress wage information for job seekers.
PaySlipBanSA monitors 20 organisations, including NGO’s, to document unfair practices.
Members of the public can add firms to this list by contacting PaySlipBanSA. We also advise job applicants when they contact us for support.”
To help the #JobAdviceSA community of South African jobseekers understand why it is unfair for employers not to advertise the salary for jobs and demand that you provide a payslip, and learn what they can do about it, Leonie will be helping us answer the following questions:
Q1. Why is it unfair to jobseekers for employers not to disclose the
salary offered in job adverts?
Q2. Why do employers/recruiters ask you to give your current salary when
you apply for a job?
Q3. What should you do if you are asked to give your payslip to a
Q4. What can be done to make job-seeking and salary negotiation fairer
for the jobseeker?
You can answer any of the questions using A1, A2, A3, etc, or ask any other questions you might have, using the hashtag #JobAdviceSA.
We look forward to chatting with you then!
