Know Your Rights – Equal Employment Opportunity Laws in Pakistan

Dear Valued Member,

Thank you for being a part of Mustakbil.com, Pakistan’s leading jobs site. This post highlights some of the Equal Employment Opportunity rights given to every Pakistani citizen in Constitution of 1973.

According to the Constitution of 1973

Article 26 says no person otherwise qualified can be discriminated against in the matter of employment on the basis of race, religion, caste, gender, residence or place of birth (Exceptions: specific services can be reserved for members of either sex if such posts/services require duties which cannot be adequately performed by the members of other sex, e.g. Lady Health Visitor)

Article 27 puts complete ban on discrimination on the basis of gender in appointment in “the service in Pakistan”, provided that the performance and functions of the job can be carried out by, and is deemed suitable for, both sexes.

Article 32 of the constitution says that special representation shall be given to women in local government institutions (i.e., local bodies).

At Mustakbil.com we do not allow employers to create any sort of discrimination among the job applicants and as soon as we find any job opening with discriminatory text we immediately remove it from our website and warn the employer. We strongly advise all employers not to discriminate jobseekers on the basis of race, religion, caste, gender and residence or place of birth. Rather they should offer equal employment opportunity for everyone.
