Mothers with young children face more discrimination in the workplace than any other group of people in Britain, according to a report.

The Equalities Review found that women with children under 11 are half as likely as men to be given a job.

The review, which publishes its final report later, was commissioned by Tony Blair in 2005 to examine persistent inequality of all kinds and to create a foundation for the new Commission for Equality and Human Rights, which starts work in October.

In an interim report last March, it said it had found evidence of “chronic, persistent and unjust inequalities” in British society.

“In too many circumstances there is evidence of severe social and economic penalties for not being male, white, straight, or able-bodied,” said the interim report’s authors, led by CEHR chair Trevor Phillips.

They described the Review’s aim as “the removal of unfair penalties associated with for example, gender, race, disability or sexual orientation”.

New employment bill to ban age and ethnic discrimination December 27, 2006

Taiwan – The legislature gave initial approval to a bill outlawing discrimination in the workplace. The bill prohibits discrimination by age, birth place, or sexual orientation.

Labor affairs council official Su Lee-chiong said, “Sexual discrimination has already been dealt with in the gender equality in the workplace law. This year we are including age, because we hope that employers will not limit job opportunities by looking at factors other than work ability. The spirit of this law is to pursue true equality in the workplace.”

Violators may be fined from NT$30,000 to NT$1.5 million (US$1,000 to $5,000). Human resource agencies placing ads with age or other specifications can also be fined. In the past, Taiwan’s employment ads often included requirements for age and gender.

MUMBAI: In what is being seen as a landmark initiative in fighting discrimination against people living with HIV/AIDS, the state government is set to announce a workplace policy to safeguard their interests. The policy—which will be the first of it kind to be adopted by a state in the country—is likely to be discussed in the coming Nagpur session.

“The workplace policy will ensure that no employee can be refused a job, denied a promotion, transferred or dismissed only because he/she is HIV positive,” said state health minister Vimal Mundada on Monday, adding that the government would implement the policy in all its offices and would call upon the private sector to adopt the model.

State health secretary Dr V S Singh, who was also present, said: “A person’s HIV positive status would have to be kept confidential and he would have to be allowed to work so long as he is medically fit. Punitive action will be taken for any violation,” he said.

Former US Policeman Alleges Anti-White Race Discrimination In Lawsuit Bid To Get Job Back October 27, 2006

EAST ST. LOUIS, Illinois A white former police officer has filed a federal lawsuit against the city, alleging racial bias in his thwarted efforts to get his job back after military duty in Iraq. Eric Brocaille, 29, claims the city of East St. Louis violated a federal law meant to protect employees who leave their jobs temporarily to serve in military units, saying three black officers were allowed to return to the force in this 31,000-resident city after their time in Iraq.

City Manager Robert Betts on Thursday called Brocaille’s claims bogus, saying Brocaille was a probationary officer when he quit his job and has snubbed the city’s request that he get a mental fitness test for the job in this city where crime often dominates headlines. “We just wanted to make sure he’s safe, physically fit and mentally able to return to work,” Betts said. “Certainly there’s a lot of post-traumatic stress with Iraq duty. East St. Louis is a very high-crime city, and you would think you’re in Iraq when you’re in East St. Louis sometimes.”

More than a million older workers cannot get a job because of a lack of investment by employers, a report by the TUC has claimed.
The trade union organisation said workers were being put on the “scrap heap” when they were keen to work.

The TUC blamed a failure to put cash into retraining for those over 50.

It urged employers to conduct an “age audit” of staff to stop discrimination and retain older workers but the CBI said employers were doing their best.

TUC deputy general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “Most baby boomers are not retiring early to cruise around the world or go bungee jumping.

David Scott, who worked as a motorcoach driver to one of the racing teams, claimed NASCAR executives deceived him and did not fulfill promises of a job following a well-publicized 1999 racial incident involving white motorcoach drivers, according to the complaint filed in Manhattan federal court that seeks unspecified damages.

Pontiac Agrees to End Hiring Quotas July 31, 2006

The Justice Department and the city of Pontiac have agreed that the city will end a practice designed to hire and promote more women and minorities in its Fire Department.

Under the consent decree, the city will offer jobs, promotions, back pay or seniority to four white males deemed to have been unlawfully denied or delayed opportunities as a result of the policy.

Critics on Monday condemned the unusual decree, which still faces final approval, as evidence of a desire by the Bush administration to dismantle affirmative action. Proponents say it ends a form of discrimination that was particularly obnoxious because it was practiced by government.

The agreement comes amid a fierce debate in Michigan over a ballot initiative that would ban such affirmative action policies. State voters will decide in November whether to ban the use of race as a factor in university admissions and government hiring.

Man barred from British royal palace job for being white July 13, 2006

LONDON (AFP) – A history graduate had been banned from applying for a post in a royal palace because he is white, British newspapers reported.

Kieron Keenan, 23, said he was told he could not put his name forward to work as a trainee museum assistant at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton on the southern English coast because he is not of African, Afro-Caribbean, South Asian or Chinese descent.

Brighton and Hove Council used the Race Relations Act to block whites from applying for the 9,000 pounds (16,500 dollars, 13,000 euros) a year job to help fill quotas for ethnic minority employees, The Daily Telegraph reported.

“It’s astonishing,” Keenan said.

“In order to be seen to be less discriminatory towards ethnic groups the council has used a law which is blatently discriminatory against another ethnic group.

“Apparently it is perfectly legal. I feel very annoyed.

“To get a graduate job in the history field is very hard and I have been automatically barred because of my skin. I am perfectly qualified to do the job.

“I didn’t even get the chance to apply because the advert made it clear you could not apply unless you were non-white.”

A spokesman for Brighton and Hove Council said: “It is lawful to offer training only for people from a certain racial group or to encourage people from that racial group to apply.”

But Bert Williams, who runs the Brighton and Hove Black History Project, countered: “Yes, the council must have a more representative work force but this is not the way it should be doing it because it’s another form of discrimination.”

The 2001 census found that of the 247,817 people in the Brighton area, 94 percent classed themselves as white, two percent as mixed race, two percent as Asian, one percent as black and one percent as Chinese or another ethnic group.
