    on who / whom could be hired

    The restrictions on who / whom could be hired for this position did not seem legal.

    Should it be 'who' or 'whom'? Could you please explain why?

    Thanks.

    Re: on who / whom could be hired

    I would use who as it's the subject of the verb could be hired.
