Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Equality, Diversity and Discrimination is an ideal introductory textbook for anyone studying a module in equality and diversity, particularly those studying the CIPD specialist elective Managing Diversity and Equal Opportunities. This book provides expert coverage of key issues in this area including recruitment and selection diversity and discrimination as well as issues relating to pay and contracts. There is also integral discussion of discrimination at termination of employment and harassment as discrimination.

Covering everything students need to know to understand equality, diversity and discrimination in the workplace as well as most importantly, how to prevent discrimination and promote equality and diversity, Equality Diversity and Discrimination is an essential handbook for all HR students. Each chapter includes case studies, examples, and legal cases to facilitate students' understanding and tasks to encourage further research around the subject ensuring that learning continues outside the classroom.
