Introduction

Mainstreaming EqualityEmployment and Work Photo of Jobcentre

That there are equality issues relevant to this area should need little elaboration as the inequalities inherent in the labour market have been fairly high profile topics of debate. The resources referenced below will give you some indication of the kinds of issues that have impacted on women, people from minority ethnic groups, disabled people, older people and others. As with other policy areas, this area should also be considered with an eye on social inclusion and social justice, as employment, income and benefits does, of course, intersect with questions of poverty and access to resources and services.
