Discrimination, work and family : recent regulatory responses to promote equality /

by Fentiman, Shannon | University of Melbourne. Centre for Employment and Labour elations Law.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law 2011Description: PDF.Other title: University of Melbourne. Centre for Employment and Labour.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Includes bibliographical references INTO AND OUT OF WORKSummary: To date, state and federal anti-discrimination legislation has been largely unsuccessful at challenging the gender norms and cultural inequalities that exist in Australian workplaces. There remains a significant reduction in labour force participation of women aged between 25 and 44 years, of which the main drivers are caring for children and other caring and household responsibilities. This policy and legislative failure is why Australia has one of the lowest labour force participation rates for women in these age ranges compared with other OECD countries. Family caring responsibilities are the most common non-work commitments that compete with work demands. Unable to challenge the notions of the 'ideal' worker or the 'Harvester family', many women and men with family and caring responsibilities are still struggling to achieve equality at work despite the issue of work-life balance being on the public policy agenda for many years. This paper will discuss the two 'right to request' models in Victoria and in the National Employment Standards at a federal level, the new positive duties on employers in the new Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) and the new general discrimination provisions contained in the Fair Work Act.Availability: (1)

They cover a range of issues such as labour and human rights, bribery and corruption, environment and information disclosure. Though voluntary for companies, governments that have endorsed the Guidelines are essentially conveying that they expect multinational companies to follow these principles and standards of good conduct in their operations worldwide. In 2000, as part of the most recent revision of the Guidelines, a new complaint procedure was agreed upon that allows non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to submit complaints concerning alleged breaches of the Guidelines to a government's National Contact Point (NCP)Availability: Items available for reference: BSL Archives (1).
