Employment Law provides an overview of the Australian labour and employment law system, primarily drawing on the Fair Work Act 2009. It includes all major topics from union law through to dismissal; and provides a short introduction to the allied areas of discrimination, public service employment law, superannuation and OHS.

Research Background: The author was approached by leading publisher, Thomson Reuters, to write this first edition book. While there were numerous lengthy texts in the field, there was no shorter text which provided a concise yet analytical appraisal. The book fills that gap.

Research Contribution: The book sets out the fundamentals of Australian employment and labour law and the main issues arising in the field. The area covered is important and dynamic. The book covers the main elements of the new Fair Work Act 2009 along with critical new court decisions, policies and areas of law reform.

Research Significance: The book has been favourably reviewed in these terms: "...Employment Law is a timely publication...The book is written by an author who is widely published in the area and who has commanded notable positions in both legal practice and academia. It conceptualises complex aspects of the law in plain language and is a useful quick reference tool for practitioners and students alike." (2011) 31 The Queensland Lawyer 43. The book has also been used by overseas academics as a useful means of digesting the most important aspects of the Australian system.
