This course will introduce you to the institutional and regulatory frameworks that influence the employment relationship in Australia. We examine the legal dimensions of different types of employment, remuneration, industrial action, health and safety regulation, termination of employment, as well as equity and discrimination law. Crucially, through this course, you can learn about your rights and obligations as an employer/practitioner/employee under current Australian legislation. Prior legal knowledge is neither required, nor expected.
