icon-long-form Knowing The Rules

An Organization recruiting through text messages is considered a commercial SMS Act. This classification means that your company’s SMS activities will be subjected to various SMS laws in the region your team is operating.

Some of the most common sets of regulations your organization is likely to encounter are The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) for the US, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation, and finally, The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for EU countries.

Each set of laws presents unique requirements and benefits for organizations that operate under it. For example, for the US’s TCPA, a given consent is still viable even if the candidate changes from using a landline to a mobile device or a wireless number.

In Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation, another form of consent is possible – implied consent. This is when a candidate has an existing business relationship with your business (like having sent an inquiry), then you can send them recruitment messages under implied consent.

However, please note a shared requirement among all three regulations- You can only send SMS when the candidates have expressly provided their consent.

icon-long-form The Cost Of Rule Violation

Unable to prove that you are allowed to conduct text communication by the receiver can land you a $500 fine for a violation and up to $1500 per case if you consciously did it. 

Another detrimental effect of not following your local commercial messaging laws is losing the trust of your candidates and partners. 

These regulations are there to protect users from spam messages and fraudulent activities. So if your team committed a violation, candidates could easily interpret that you do not have their best interests in mind.

Understandably, any recruitment team would be eager to reach as many candidates as possible. However, your texts can always be marked as spam and disruptive if they are not planned and executed carefully.
