Complaint against govt job interviews on Sundays
24 January 2015 — Chin Christians applying for government jobs complain that employment interviews and examinations should not be held on Sundays.
A Hakha government employee said on condition of anonymity that most of job assessment took place on Sundays and that Christian applicants were not able to attend church services.
The State Co-operative Department is conducting a written exam for new applicants from 9 to 12 noon tomorrow.
A female applicant, who asks not to be named, said that she would not be able to go to church as the exam time coincided with the church service.
“We have no choice but to sit the exam on Sunday. It is just one-day and the time is fixed. I feel like it is timed with the church service,” she added.
She said that an oral interview would take place after 1pm on Monday.#
