The article reports that Kevin Green, the new head of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation (REC), has urged recruiters not to exclude women. Green said that law-flouting employers are asking recruitment agencies to screen out women of childbearing age, and it is up to agencies to stop the practice. REC research in 2005 found that 78% of recruiters had been told by firms that they would prefer not to hire women likely to have children in the near future.
