Is it appropriate?

Soooo...does anyone know if it's appropriate/legal for a job posting to include this in the list of requirements: "(If you are struggling with depression or anxiety, this job is not right for you)"

NO, the Terms of Use say:

 


Expressing a preference in a job post or proposal or otherwise unlawfully discriminating on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, military/veteran status or any basis protected by applicable law

I'm sure this is going to trigger a very negative response, but objecting to this is just dumb. If the client is offering a job that is stressful, disturbing, whatever in such a way that it would be dangerous to a person with such conditions, etc., how on earth does it benefit anyone to force him to conceal that fact and potentially inadvertantly hire someone who won't be able to do the job and will likely be harmed by the effort?

I know what you mean. It is the same when it says "natives only".

It really depends how it is written. Why not look for someone who is e.g. positiv.
