This resource, part of a series on gender equity in employment, was adapted from guidelines developed by the Department of Labour (now Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment). It provides employers or human resources officers with three tools to guide examination of employment practices to ensure equity. The tools broadly deal with collecting and understanding business data, identifying key differences in employment between women and men, and planning a response to differences identified. A wide range of key questions are provided, to help in these assessments.
Appendices provide a list of common symptoms of inequity, and their possible causes, as well as a glossary of terminology and descriptions of the relevant New Zealand legislation.
