Hiring discriminations based on national origin and religious closeness
This study uses the findings of a correspondence testing in order to assess separately the potential effects of North African origin and Muslim and Catholic religions at job access level in the real estate sector. We constructed 6 jobseekers profiles, each representing a particular situation with respect to national origin and religious closeness. We sent 1800 resumes in reply to 300 job vacancies advertised between mid-April and mid-September in Paris and its suburbs. We find evidences of significant hiring discrimination against the North African origin applicants, regardless of their religious closenesses and against applicants signaling closeness with Muslim religion, regardless of their national origin.
