An employer's apparently neutral policies and practices may, perhaps accidentally, certainly unreasonably, exclude women or minority applicants or employees: this is unlawful discrimination. A host of traditional employment practices have been found to fall into this category - height and weight requirements, a last-on-first-off policy, job mobility conditions, even a bus ticketing system; all have fallen foul of equal opportunity legislation. This indirect discrimination legislation is complex and in places highly technical. Its impact and potential is little understood. Rosemary Hunter comprehensively analyses the legislation, State and Federal, private sector and public. She refers extensively to the large body of practice which has grown up in the United States and the United Kingdom. She includes numerous worked examples to show the factual situations which arise and discusses what "legally defensible" employment procedures may involve.

Industry Reviews

... the clarity and insight with which Hunter has dealt with the strengths and pitfalls of the legislative framework governing indirect discrimination makes her work an outstanding piece of scholarship. .... Not only does it contribute to the demystification of the procedural and legal semantics which have prevailed to date but also to the shaping of the popular perception of what is proscribed conduct and hence unlawful in the context of indirect discrimination. - Australian Journal of Labour Law
