Sex Discrimination
Sex Discrimination Despite Legislation for Equal Opportunities, sexism is still in evidence in the workplace. Sexism is a particular concern for society when considering it\'s effect in the workplace. Sexism has always been a particular problem in the labour market especially with the formation of capitalism.

Downsizing
Downsizing According to a 1997 survey by the American Management Association (AMA), the most often claimed reasons for downsizing are “organizational restructuring,” “business downturn,” and “reengineering of business processes.” Downsizing has adversely affected 43 million jobs since 1980. Many organizations are realizing that downsizing may not be the best solution for reducing costs. The time and money it takes to train employees often make downsizing a wasteful procedure.
