Locating, Recruiting, and Employing Women: An Equal Opportunity Approach.
Foxley, Cecelia H.
To aid employers in providing equal opportunities for women workers, this book describes working women today, their education and training, laws, regulations, and programs providing employment protection, and suggests ways of recruiting, employing, and working with women. An overview of women in the present workforce is presented--their participation rates, occupational status, marital and family status, and earnings--and evidence is offered to dispel many common myths. The educational background and employment preparation of women is discussed, new directions in women's education are indicated, and statistical data are provided to assist employers in setting future employment projections or goals. The major anti-discriminatory laws and regulations are described with the texts appended. Methods are outlined for compliance with anti-discrimination laws through the development of an effective affirmative action program. Sources useful to employers in locating and recruiting women candidates for employment are listed, and suggestions are offered for working effectively with women employees and for providing a climate conducive to their full professional and occupational development.
