Taking a Postmodern Perspective on Equality at Work: Useful Conception or Useless Misconception?
In fusing postmodernism and UK equality at work, this paper contends that a postmodern perspective on work generally and equality at work specifically reveals new interpretations of equality and inequality. Commodification, consumerism, oppositional terms and language, multiple realities and rhetoric are all shown to have connections with equality at work. Consequently, key inferences are drawn on taking a postmodern perspective on equality at work and a conclusion is reached on whether this perspective offers a useful conception or useless misconception in scrutiny of equality at work.
