Problems and Issues in the Employment of Minority, Disadvantaged and Female Groups: An Annotated Bibliography.
Pinto, Patrick R., Comp.; Buchmeier, Jeanne O., Comp.
Today there is no more critical manpower management issue for employers than adequate staffing practices with regard to three large, and sometimes overlapping, groups: minorities, the disadvantaged, and females. The amount of material dealing with this topic is staggering. Within the personnel field itself, the issues change when questions about recruitment turn to questions about training, and compensation, and dealing with unions. We have undertaken to compile this bibliography to identify some of these issues. This bibliography covers material published since July 2, 1965, the effective date of Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. It include references through Summer 1972. There are 548 entries listed, most with brief annotations. The contents are organized as follows: Part 1 concerns "General Reference Sources." These include (a) loose-leaf reporting services and (b) abstracting services. Part II deals with the "Legal Context." Its three sections deal with reference sources; Federal legislation, executive orders, and federal agency guidelines; and, Minnesota legislation, respectively. Part III, "Topics in Reference to General Disadvantaged Groups," includes the following sections: Collections of Readings and Case Studies; Staffing: Recruitment, Testing, Selection, Promotion, and Labor Markets; Training: Retraining, Upgrading, OJT, Supervisory Training, and Manpower Development; Compensation: Discrimination and Wage Differentials; Unions and Labor Relations: Barriers, Apprenticeship, and Attitudes; and, Miscellaneous Readings.
