    schema:description "An employer's apparently neutral policies and practices, perhaps accidentally, certainly unreasonably, exclude women or minority applicants or employees: unlawful discrimination. A host of traditional employment practices have been found to fall into this category - height and weight requirements, a last-on-first-off policy, job mobility conditions, even a bus ticketing system, have fallen foul of equal opportunity legislation. This indirect discrimination legislation is complex and in places highly technical. its impact and potential is little understood. Rosemary Hunter comprehensively analyses the legislation, State and Federal, private sector and public. She refers extensively to the large body of practice which has grown up in the United States and the United Kingdom. She includes numerous worked examples to show the factual situations which arise and discusses what "legally defensible" employment procedures may involve."@en ;
