Reply To: Should airlines and airport security companies employ such people?

There are no laws in the UK which say you have to employ foreign nationals of any kind or any quotas. There are discrimination laws which means you can not discriminate against ethnic minorities which is completely different to “having to” or “quotas”. Employers are free to employ people from EU states on production of passport. Others have to have the correct working permits and visas. When this guy applied for a job at BA he would have had to produce the correct documentation and BA would have checked that through the National Insurance check to ensure its not duff.

Turning to Sparepocket’s question, certainly in the UAE only Emiraties get to be police, customs officers and even revenue protection on the buses and metro.
