Professor Pittard, M.; Naughton, R.

Australian Labour and Employment Law is a comprehensive analysis of labour and employment law.


Format: Paperback


Australian Labour and Employment Law by Professor Marilyn J Pittard and Richard B Naughton is a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of labour and employment law in Australia for practitioners working in employment relations and human resources. In this first edition, the authors discuss and analyse recent trends in workplace law and approaches to legal regulation in Australia, including the contract of employment arising under the Fair Work Act 2009 and its impact on employers and employees in the workplace. This book offers a comprehensive explanation of the traditional Australian industrial system and the national system of federal regulation national and looks at Australia’s use of international developments in labour and employment law.


This careful analysis also covers institutions and their impact on work arrangements, the nature of employment relationships, employment contracts, employer and employee duties, termination of employment contracts, unfair dismissals, employment conditions, collective agreement making, individual and flexible workplace arrangements, bargaining and the statutory right to strike, protection of workplace rights and freedom of information, trade unions as well as common law controls over industrial action. Australian Labour and Employment Law questions the place of labour law as a major area of study and its relationship with other areas of law. This new edition is accompanied by extensive ancillary material to aid student learning and provide lecturer support.
