Abstract

In what some would call a crowded market of good employment or labour texts, this book:

1) Analyses the key elements and new developments of both employment and labour law - issues relating to the employment of workers as well as trade union-related issues and new developments such as the responses to the Trade Union Royal Commission and anti-bullying laws;

2) Analyses the crucial emerging issues and new frontiers, such as transnational labour law (including a discussion of Chinese labour standards and Brexit, and their relevance to Australia); immigration and employment; volunteering; as well as the impact of robots and automation;

3) Analyses areas of work that either have not previously been considered in texts or that are important, yet do not regularly appear in labour and employment texts, such as public sector work and 'The Big Society'; judicial work; and taxation;

4) Provides teaching materials, such as tutorial and group work questions and chapter summaries at the end of chapters; and

5) Has accompanying web materials - so developing areas (such as workplace policy) have a flexible medium with which materials can be presented in a useful and timely way.
