Employers are being urged to take on more candidates
from ethnic minority groups as new research show discrimination

The report published by the Department for Work and Pensions shows
that Muslim women were particularly likely to be penalised when it
comes to getting work.
Bosses at firms across the country are now being urged to look at
graduates from different ethnic backgrounds when
Speaking about the report, secretary of state for work and pensions
John Hutton, said: "Along with improvements in training and skills
- such as the increased emphasis on English language training for
benefit recipients we announced earlier this month - ethnic
minority employment rates can be improved.
"It's about government leading from the front and asking those
supplying government to adopt the same principles."
The number of people from ethnic minority groups who are graduating
from university has increased steadily in the past decade and
despite the recent report, statistics show that more employers are
taking on ethic minority staff than in the past.
