Abstract

Establishing whether legislation promotes better equity outcomes than non-mandated, voluntaristic instruments such as self-regulation or peer regulation has been difficult. Findings of an Australian survey comparing equity policies and outcomes in those workplaces that are regulated by employment equity legislation with those that are not subject to legislative provisions are presented. Research findings showed equity indicators were strongest in those workplaces covered by the legislation.
