Duplicate Ads

Multiple ads posted for the same item/service are considered duplicates on HPO. Duplicates clutter the listings and make searching harder for other users. When posting ads, please keep the following in mind:

Note:
Avoiding Discrimination

Everyone wants and deserves to be treated fairly. Pakistan has a dual system of civil and sharia law. The Constitution of Pakistan recognizes equality between men and women (Art. 25(2) states "There shall be no discrimination on the basis of sex"). When you’re posting on HPO, it’s very important that your ad respects the law. You need to write your ads so that they don’t discriminate based on age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.

Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

The easy way to bring the spirit and the letter of the law to your posts is with this brilliant online tool from the Equality and Human Rights Commission. It helps you to find the guidance you need in almost every scenario, whether you’re posting or responding. And best of all, it’s free.

Focus on the Skills You’re After, Not the Person

When you’re writing your job description, focus on stating the skills you’re looking for. Don’t think about a particular type of person.

At HPO, we rely on our community to help us keep everything as it should be. You can get involved by reporting an ad you want us to look at. We’ll work with its owner to help get it right.
