Workplace effects of equal employment opportunity legislation : the Australian experience
Peetz, David R., Gardner, Margaret, Brown, Kerry A., & Berns, Sandra (2008) Workplace effects of equal employment opportunity legislation : the Australian experience. Policy Studies, 29(4), pp. 405-419.
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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
