Reuters title Employers must disclose details of job candidates’ social media profiles, as part of new rules for the job market article Reuters/File Job seekers will have to disclose details about their social media accounts in an effort to combat fake job postings, which have been blamed for a sharp rise in joblessness.
The government on Tuesday passed a new law that aims to crack down on fake job listings, which many employers have blamed for the sharp rise of joblessness since the start of the global financial crisis.
The draft law will require companies to provide applicants with a clear description of their jobs and responsibilities, and details of how they can verify that the information is accurate.
It also requires companies to ensure that applicants are able to complete job applications.
Companies have been increasingly worried about fake job sites and have been seeking to ensure applicants can verify the authenticity of their postings.
The law will give the government more power to crack Down on Job Sites and Fake Job Applications.
The law will also require employers to inform job seekers of the identity of the person who has submitted an application.
The new law is part of a broader push by the government to crackdown on job postings and fake job applications, which it says are causing joblessness to soar.
The number of jobless people in the United States has more than doubled since 2014, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Many of the new jobseekers are women.
More than half of those jobless Americans are women, according a study released last month by the U.S. Census Bureau.
The study also found that the rate of unemployment among women has more often been greater than men’s, despite the fact that the unemployment rate for men has been steadily decreasing.
