The key tool of multiculturalism is seen as monitoring the ethnic background of the workforce. ’69 In Europe, the legal framework supporting equal opportunities and diversity has been strengthened by an EU Directive which all member countries must embody in national law. Its coverage in terms of types of difference and disadvantage is wide and it is aimed at bringing into being a merit-based world. However, the principle of multiculturalism that underlies the legal framework is under attack from some of the people it is intended to benefit.

Despite that, the position of minorities in regard to work in many of those same countries is by no means acceptable, pointing to the fact that organisations in many cases are evading the law. However, for the majority of organisations, obeying the law is a basic rule. The legal prohibitions of discrimination against minorities have therefore undoubtedly been a major influence on the improving position of minorities in employment. It has often been argued that ending discrimination will only come with a change of attitudes, not by legal means, but there are numerous examples of legal changes ultimately affecting people’s attitudes.

Instead there was a need to equalise the starting points. The later view is that authorities and employers should equip people to be able to use their opportunities and that business demands should be screened for fairness. In the UK, in the 1980s and 1990s, legal opinion began to reflect the business case for equality and diversity, so that, for instance, in some cases, diversity might justify giving preference to a minority member. ) There is a growing tendency to criticise the multicultural assumptions on which legislation such as the above is based.
