    its common practice. Ive known people whove worked in HR whove been told to reject all non english sounding names.

    But 'Gary Owen' is Welsh-sounding.

    In any case it was BS, he submitted 2 different CVs.

    yes, this particular case sounds like bullshit, but its still interesting, as ive heard of it happening before. Probably much less in big cities

    This guy will rightly become the poster-boy for spurious 'playing the race-card' accusations too.

    It definitely happens (there have been plenty of studies showing it), but this isn't an example of it. If he'd sent in two identical CVs with just the name changed, he might've had a case.
