This leading text provides a valuable guide to the complex network of laws that regulate our workplaces. As with previous editions, it offers an authoritative analysis of key principles and policy issues, backed by extensive reference to other writings in the field. In charting the continuing development of Australian labour law, this edition takes account of the many changes to Federal and State legislation since the previous edition, as well as the more significant court decisions during this period. Features include new or expanded sections on the regulation of bargaining tactics, dispute resolution under certified agreements, monitoring and privacy at the workplace, securing employee entitlements, and protection for whistleblowers. New chapters have also been created to break up the treatment of agreement-making, and of termination of employment, so as to make those parts of the book more accessible.
