ABSTRACT:

This paper examined ethical barriers to employee selection in Uganda. Basing on the extensive literature review, the paper set out to answer three questions, namely; a) what are the ethical barriers to the effective employee selection in organizations and how do they impact on organizational performance? b) What theoretical explanations underpin these ethical barriers? c) How can these ethical barriers be removed? The paper extensively discussed that employee selection is being affected by ethical barriers such as deception of job seekers, bribery, demanding sex in exchange for jobs and nepotism. It is recommended that deontological approach be embraced by employers because it advocates treating job candidates with dignity.
