Abstract

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.
