Caste Discrimination Legislation: Implications for Business, Employers and Organizations

  • Prakash Shah


Chapter 4 adopts a practice-oriented perspective, explaining what challenges those employing South Asians, South Asian businesses and Indian community organizations face as a result of the caste provision. These challenges include the litigation each type of organization might be faced with and what areas of their work may be affected. For example, in the case of community organizations, the holding of community events, such as Navratri or even weddings, could be questioned on grounds of caste preferences. The employment of personnel to perform rituals for weddings could also be exposed to charges of discrimination. This chapter explains the pressures to be faced within litigation, including the burden and standard of proof. It points to the impact on the associational freedom of Indian communities, including possible impact on charity status and fund-raising.
