This project identified equality issues which have been exacerbated by the impact of the current recession on the labour market. It quantified the impact of the recession on employment in different groups, with particular reference to its eff ects on “at-risk” groups in the workplace (e.g. women, ethnic minorities, younger or older workers and disabled people). It also predicted trends and the future negative impact on these groups if the economic downturn continues, and established a baseline for future research in this area.
