Anderson, T., Millward, N. and Forth, J. ORCID: 0000-0001-7963-2817 (2004). Equal Opportunities Policies and Practice at the Workplace: Secondary Analysis of WERS98. London, UK: Department of Trade and Industry.

Abstract

The European Union Employment and Race Directives have required amendments to be made to existing equality legislation in the UK and have required new legislation to tackle discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, religion and age in employment. This paper provides evidence on the scope of workplaces’ equal opportunities policies and practices prior to the introduction of such legislative amendments, and aims to shed further light on linkages between such policies/practices and patterns of job satisfaction and workplace well-being. The evidence presented here clearly suggests that there is scope for the extension of equal opportunities among workplaces in Britain, particularly in the areas covered by the Directives.
