Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses the antidiscrimination laws of the countries examined, so it is in these laws that the author seeks and proposes his definition of ethnic equality in employment. Ethnic equality in employment thus entails: (1) an inquiry into the structure of advantage and disadvantage at the workplace, (2) the implementation of measures so as to make advantage and disadvantage visible and (3) the transformation of these structures so as to remove unjustifiable barriers and unjustifiable privileges which hinder ethnic minorities in their: (a) access to employment, and (b) participation, development and enjoyment of benefits at the workplace. Furthermore he uses the term systemic ethnic discrimination in employment to refer to systemic discrimination in employment which is connected to race, ethnic origin, national origin, color or descent.

Keywords: antidiscrimination law; employment; ethnic equality; systemic ethnic discrimination; workplace
