How to find and recruit employees in Israel
Discrimination laws in Israel
Israel has strict national legislation protecting workers and candidates from discrimination. These laws broadly reflect those of most other countries and prohibit discrimination by employers based on age, gender, religion, disabilities, sexual orientation, race, politics, being pregnant, and so on. Additionally, as Israel has mandatory national military service, there are also laws preventing employers from discriminating against workers who are legally obliged to take time off for military duty.
Because of these extensive protections, you should always be careful to adhere to the law when hiring in Israel. At Horizons, our global expansion experts can help you understand the rules of Israel recruitment and give you the confidence to recruit without risking legal action.
Onboarding staff in Israel
There are no fixed rules for onboarding new employees to your company in Israel. However, we recommend always being open and honest throughout the Israel recruitment process about what is expected and providing sufficient training as a priority when new workers join the company. Additionally, it is always a good idea to go through the terms and entitlements laid out in each employee’s contract in detail to prevent any misunderstandings or disputes.
