Legal obligation to interview and management development?
Do companies, both internally and externally, have any legal obligation to advertise and interview for a new post if there is clearly more than one person interested in applying? Also, are there any legal guidelines for the use of management development programmes for employees? ie can people simply join if they decide they want to, follow no particular structure and obtain a job at any point (completion is not relevant as there is no structure!) on nothing but the decision of one manager? Help much appreciated! Thansk Fengirl. Does this mean that two employees on the same management development programme (neither obviously better than the other) with one receiving obvious favouritism and subsequent promotion is legal and is in fact at the managers discretion?
