This course will explore the institutional and regulatory framework that influences the employer/employee relationship in Australia. We will examine the legal dimensions of different modes of employment, remuneration, industrial action, health and safety regulation, termination of employment, as well as equity and discrimination law. The subject is not designed to equip students to practice labour law. It is, however, intended as a means by which you can gain a good historical, theoretical and practical working knowledge of the Australian legal system as it pertains to labour relations. Prior legal knowledge is neither required nor expected.
