Can workers' expectations account for the persistence of discrimination? /

by Filippin, Antonio | Institute for the Study of Labor.

Publisher: Bonn, Germany Institute for the Study of Labor 2009Description: PDF.Other title: Institute for the Study of Labor. Discussion paper : no. 4490.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: October 2009Summary: The paper explains how workers' expectations of being discriminated against can be self-confirming, accounting for the persistence of unequal outcomes in the labour market even beyond the causes that originally generated them. The theoretical framework used is a two-stage game of incomplete information in which one employer promotes only one among two workers after having observed their productivity, which is used as a signal of their ability. Workers who expect to be discriminated against exert a lower effort on average, because of a lower expected return, thereby being promoted less frequently even by unbiased employers. This implies that achievements of minority groups may not improve when the fraction of discriminatory employers actually decreases, and such a mechanism is robust both to trial work periods and to affirmative actions like quotas.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The decline of employment among older people in Britain. /

by Campbell, Nigel.

Publisher: London, U.K. Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion, London School of Economics 1999Description: v, 75 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Older men have experienced the largest falls in employment over the last twenty years. Two-fifths of men aged between 55 and 65 are without work, compared to one-fifth in 1979, equivalent to 600,000 fewer jobs. Older women have not shared in the general rise of female employment. This paper analyses the Labour Force Survey and the first six waves of the British Household Panel Survey to examine why older people's employment has fallen, which groups have been most affected, and whether these trends are likely to continue. The people most likely to leave the labour market are either (a) in the bottom quartile of the wage distribution or (b) with wages in the top half but who are also members of an occupational pension scheme. Once displaced, few older people return to work. There are instead significant transitions between unemployment, long-term sickness and retirement, almost always weakening attachment to the labour market. Furthermore, falling male employment seems to be part of an ongoing trend, rather than simply affecting one unfortunate generation.Availability: (1)

Vulnerability in the fair work-place : why unfair dismissal laws fail to adequately protect labour-hire employees in Australia /

by Malone, Trina | Melbourne University.Centre for Employment and Labour elations Law.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Melbourne University.Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law 2011Description: PDF.Other title: Melbourne University. Centre for Employment and Labour.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: May 2011 Bibliography : p. 25-30 INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: Labour-hire employees (LHEs) do not have effective recourse to unfair dismissal laws against their employers where they have lost access to their livelihood in circumstances that are substantively or procedurally unfair. This paper provides a critique of tribunal decisions relating to unfair dismissals against employer labour-hire firms (LHFs). Such decisions highlight three key problems for LHEs in establishing each component of the definition of an unfair dismissal. First, a termination of a host assignment will not necessarily constitute a termination of the employment relationship with the LHF. Second, the host's reasons for the termination of the assignment are considered to be largely irrelevant, even if unfair. And third, tribunals are willing to accept a low standard of procedural fairness where the contractual arrangements between the LHF and the host do not provide for the implementation of a fair dismissal procedure. The paper concludes that LHEs who have lost their livelihood in unfair circumstances may 'slip' through the net of legislative protection by failing to meet the definition of an 'unfair dismissal'.Availability: (1)
