That isn't baseless discrimination. Finding people with the right skills is what recruitment is all about.
TBH, the whole idea of policy to stop discrimination is daft anyway. If a company foolishly ignores people because of their colour, background etc, other more encompassing companies will get to employ them gainfully instead. The former's loss, is the latter's gain. In the long run, that will make the latter more competitive, encouraging other companies to be more open minded too.
The state should just retract its neck and let people trade freely.
