Syllabus

The aim of this unit is to introduce students to 'best practice' research on the employment relationship. The unit focuses on a small number of key contemporary issues relating to the challenges of creating and sustaining a positive employment relationship and a healthy and safe work environment. The unit examines the theory and practice of how an organisation's performance may be influenced by the relationship with the workforce, unions and other stakeholders. The unit also examines, in broad terms, the key elements of the legislative framework for employment and the associated institutional arrangements as well as the legislative and management challenges of sustaining a healthy and safe working environment.
