Bona Fide Occupational Requirement

[ˌbəʊnə ˈfaɪdi ˌɒkjʊˈpeɪʃnəl rɪˈkwaɪəmənt]

Within employment law, a bona fide occupational requirement or bona fide occupational qualification, refers to the quality or an attribute that employers are allowed to take into consideration when they make decisions on retention and hiring of employees.

This is a quality that when considered in other contexts would comprise discrimination in violation of civil rights employment law; the qualification must be included in the employment offer.
