The paper mentions that despite legislation and 'codes of best practice' being put in place to protect women in the workplace from outmoded management tactics, we still get letters from female members of the IET complaining that they're not being dealt with fairly. And, despite the fact that we are now in the 21st century, there are still issues arising. Managers who think that women are by default their assistants, or that those on part-time contracts are less valuable to the organisation, are in for a rude awakening. This isn't simply because they're being old fashioned, but because there is a whole stack of legislation that they obviously need to be aware of. It will be something of a shock to reaslise that the two cases in this feature are real, but they are, and they reflect an alarmingly common set of experiences of women in the workplace. We have taken out some of the details that might identify the actual circumstances of the dilemmas and, as usual, while we aim to provide the best possible advice, we would like to remind you that all experiences are different and that the advice given here is no substitute for appropriate legal and HR advice in the face of real employment issues.
