Can an employer decline to further consider eligible applicants or candidates during the assessment process?
Employers may end consideration of an eligible applicant or candidate at any time during the assessment process for job-related reasons including, but not limited to, an applicant or candidate lacking required competencies, or not satisfying other requirements such as shift or geographical availability. Those applicants or candidates removed from consideration for position specific reasons may remain eligible to be considered for other positions.
