(c)the disabled person has presented a complaint under section 8 against the employer;

(d)the employer has advertised the employment (whether before or after the disabled person applied for it); and

(e)the advertisement indicated, or might reasonably be understood to have indicated, that any application for the advertised employment would, or might, be determined to any extent by reference to—
