Dutch mystery guests aim to name and shame discriminatory recruitment

The Dutch capital city of Amsterdam plans to launch a new initiative that uses ‘mystery guests’ to identify companies guilty of discrimination when recruiting staff.

Dutch News reports the project will start by looking at the city’s own staff, focusing on companies in which it has a shareholding such as Schiphol airport, the port authority and the public transport company GVB. 

Amsterdam already uses mystery guests to clamp down on discriminatory door policies at clubs and bars. 

The plans, which also include a proposal to name and shaming companies found to have discriminated against jobseekers, are set to be discussed by city councillors on 30 January.
