contributing to define ethical hiring
The most robust assessment tool of ethical recruitment practices
The IRIS Standard and corresponding guidelines serve as a reference point for labour recruiters, employers and state actors on how to integrate ethical recruitment principles into recruitment-related management systems, policies, regulations, processes and procedures. To achieve this, the IRIS Standard defines operational indicators against which labour recruiters can be measured to assess compliance.
The IRIS Standard consists of two overarching principles and five specific principles. Each principle is supported by one or more criteria with corresponding sets of indicators to be met by labour recruiters to be IRIS compliant. You can find the seven core IRIS Principles below:
A. Respect for Laws, Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
B. Respect for Ethical and Professional Conduct
Prohibition of Recruitment Fees to Jobseekers
Respect for Freedom of Movement
Respect for Transparency of Terms and Conditions of Employment
Respect for Confidentiality and Data Protection
Respect for Access to Remedy
