BA recruitment process criticised

Employment lawyers have told the BBC that British Airways could be in breach of both disability and sex discrimination laws.

The BBC has learned that as part of their recruitment process BA send out a reference request which asks very detailed questions about whether a prospective employee has children, and how much time has been taken off to look after them.

BA said the information gathered has "absolutely no influence on the recruitment process."

Graham Satchell reports.
