Synopsis

This seeding project aims to examine the extent and nature of discrimination that South Australian workers experience in their jobs, and to explore the impact that this discrimination may have on their health, and whether particular types of employment types leave people more vulnerable to discrimination.  It will also consider whether the social connections and social support people have, their sense of control of their life, and the action that they may or may not take in the face of discrimination, affects the health impacts of discrimination.
