The Effects of Anti-age Discrimination Legislation: A Comparative Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
The central aim of this article is to evaluate, compare, and contrast the perceptions of key stakeholders with regard to the likely effects of anti-discrimination legislation on employment relations practice in a liberal market economy, that of the United Kingdom. It is based on a series of in-depth interviews conducted around the time of the implementation of the legislation, compared and contrasted with a similar panel of interviews conducted in New Zealand. In that country, which has similar legal traditions to the United Kingdom and many similarities in terms of employment relations, anti-age discrimination legislation has been in place for some years, so the comparison provides useful insights.
