Good Practice Note: Non-Discrimination and Equal OpportunityDiscrimination can take many forms and can affect both access to employment and the treatment of employees once they are employed.

Given the complexity of the challenge, this Note seeks to help IFC clients and the wider private sector increase their understanding of the issue in a number of key areas, including: recognition of the various types of discrimination, and how and where it can occur in the workplace; obligations under national law and other international provisions; practical approaches and options for addressing workplace discrimination; and the benefits derived from diversifying the workforce.
