The Negro and equal employment opportunities; a review of management experiences in twenty companies by Louis A Ferman( Book )

14 editions published between 1966 and 1968 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To study the application of equal employment practices in company settings and to assess the impact of these practices on minority group employment, 20 companies with varying employment structure, industry, size, number of branch units, geographical spread, and product or service were studied. All were trying to promote equal opportunities in their firms. Data were obtained from union officials, 134 company officials, 205 white workers including supervisors, and 215 negro workers who were interviewed by persons of their own race to facilitate frankness. The findings included -- (1) management reported more equal opportunities achievements in developing new recruitment procedures than in training and promotion practices, (2) management viewed the negro job problem as a community rather than a company responsibility, (3) union unwillingness to modify seniority and apprenticeship structures had been a barrier to equal opportunity, (4) few white workers admitted that negroes had any special job difficulties because of skin color, (5) the major fear of whites was the envisioned threat of preferential hiring practices for negroes, (6) negro workers felt that there was considerable job discrimination against them in hiring, training, and promotions, and they believed that their lack of opportunity was more a matter of their skin color than their lack of training, and (7) the negro promotion rate was in fact lower than the white rate. Recommendations included the necessity for continued monitoring of company equal employment practices by outside agencies with statutory powers to effect change. (Et)

Plant closings and economic dislocation by Jeanne P Gordus( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies of 27 plant shutdowns during the past two decades are summarized and analyzed. The organization of this research summary follows the plant-closing event in a chronological fashion. In the first section is considered the state of plant-closing research and the concerns and options of the groups involved in a shutdown. A second chapter views the management decision in a series of economic contexts: international, national, and local. Next, the immediate and intermediate responses of management, the union or unions, and the community are considered, together with some related material about recent state and federal legislative initiatives and a brief outline of how European countries respond to economic dislocation. The second half of the volume (chapters 4-6) is concerned with the experiences of the displaced workers, their job search behaviors and subsequent labor market experiences, their participation in programs designed to facilitate reemployment and the outcomes of those programs, and the effects of job loss on mental health. A concluding section reflects upon the aims and objectives set out earlier and proposes concrete research projects as well as a general research agenda. It also summarizes the research findings and outlines the implications for policy and practice. (Ylb)

Concepts of internal agency structure and operations, agency-company relations, and agency-enrollee relations, with recommendations for their implementation, form the three main sections of this handbook developed for manpower agency administrators, supervisory staffs and program planners. It is designed to aid those who organize and develop in-agency training for operational staff and to introduce operational problems and procedures that are basic in operating a manpower agency for the hard-to-employ. Key developmental concepts, based on research findings, are structured with operational objectives, policy guidelines, benefits to the agency, and practice principles (specific prescriptions on what needs to be done and by whom, how it can be accomplished, structures and resources needed to accomplish the activities, and foreseeable difficulties). The handbook contains indexes on subjects, examples of agency experience, and research findings. (Nh)
