Ad for 'reliable workers' banned as discrimination

I couldn't believe this.

The boss of a British recruitment firm said she was told she could not place an advertisement for ''reliable workers'' at the local Jobcenter because it discriminated against unreliable people.

Nicole Mamo, 48, wanted to post an ad for a low-paying domestic cleaner on her local Jobcentre Plus website. The text of the ad ended by stating that applicants for the post '"must be very reliable and hard-working."

But when Mamo called the Jobcentre the following day, she was told that her ad would not be displayed in the store. A Jobcentre worker claimed that the word ''reliable'' meant they could be sued for discriminating against unreliable workers.

This is unbelievable that somebody was stupid enough to actually think that…
