Craig (Norwegian Centre for Human Rights at the U. of Oslo) argues that traditional complaint-based anti- discrimination laws are inherently inadequate to respond to systemic discrimination in employment. He examines the mechanisms and characteristics of systemic discrimination and the shortcomings of complaint-based laws, noting that these characteristics can also inform employers and government authorities about effective preventive measures. In searching for a rational governmental policy response to systemic discrimination, Craig evaluates selected legal regimes that impose proactive obligations on employers to promote equality in the workplace and explains why some of these regimes function better than others.

This book argues that traditional complaint-based antidiscrimination laws are inherently inadequate to respond to systemic discrimination in employment. It examines the mechanisms and characteristics of systemic discrimination and the shortcomings of complaint-based laws. Yet these characteristics can also inform employers and government authorities of the kinds of preventive action that help alleviate systemic discrimination at the workplace.In its search for a rational government policy response to systemic discrimination, the book evaluates selected legal regimes which impose proactive obligations on employers to promote equality at the workplace. Proactive regimes are regulatory in nature, rather than adjudicatory. They induce employer compliance through technical assistance, dialogue and regulatory pressure, rather than court orders. By examining the key elements of these regimes the author explains why some proactive regimes function better than others, and why proactive regimes function better than complaint-based laws in addressing systemic discrimination.
