Unfair selection

Unfair selection refers to the unethical or discriminatory practices during the recruitment and hiring process, where candidates are not evaluated based on their qualifications, skills, or experience, but rather on irrelevant factors such as race, gender, age, or personal connections. It undermines equal employment opportunities and can result in hiring decisions that are biased and unjust.

When a job applicant is denied a position solely because of their age, even though they possess the necessary skills and experience for the role. In this case, the employer's decision is discriminatory and not based on merit, leading to unfair treatment of the candidate.
