Job applicants and people who have been offered a post at the university have also been asked: “Do you suffer any breast problems? Have you ever been treated for gynaecological problems? Have you ever suffered prostate problems?”
NUIG, according to the questionnaire, says that the questions are necessary to establish if the appointee is “fit for the job”.
If he or she can, “carry out the job without any undue risk to the health and safety of themselves or others at work”.
And that NUIG “will have reasonable expectation that the appointee will provide regular attendance at work until retirement”.
