234 indexed pages. Too often we learn about equal employment opportunity law when things have already gone terribly wrong and an employee brings a complaint against the organisation. Then, faced with the potential high costs of compensation awards, plummeting morale, and damage to the organisation’s reputation, the importance of understanding EEO is all too clear. Now, this authoritative, plain-language guide explains equal employment opportunity laws in Australia and shows how promoting equal employment opportunity will bene?t employees and organisations. This guide will help employers, managers and employees understand their rights and obligations under Australian law. ° Starts with ‘What is equal employment opportunity?’ and covers all the important aspects of equal opportunity law, relevant industrial laws and affirmative action. Q Brief case studies highlight the key legal points, complaints procedures and the consequences of harassment and discrimination. 0 Invaluable checklists help in assessing the awareness of EEO obligations in an organisation and show how to build more equitable workplaces. Helpful appendices include a summary of all the EEO or anti-discrimination laws in Australia, a Model Dispute Resolution Procedure and options available for litigating matters of discrimination.
