The complainant said that his daughter applied for a job with the company in question and it turned out to be door to door selling for a company selling a household utility. The complainant considered the description of the job advertised to be misleading as he did not consider it to be a ‘customer service’ type role as indicated.
The advertisers failed to respond to the complaint.
The Complaints Committee considered the detail of the complaint and expressed their concerns at the advertisers’ failure to respond in the matter. They reminded them that there was an onus on all advertisers to demonstrate that their advertising was in conformity with the Code. In the absence of the advertisers’ response the Committee upheld the complaint under Section 2.7 of the Code.
The advertisement must not run in its current form again. The Complaints Committee also requested that the ASAI forward a copy of the adjudication to Jobs.ie.
