Fair Work

Fair Work

The new workplace laws and the Work Choices legacy

Edited by Anthony Forsyth and Andrew Stewart

This wide-ranging collection is an authoritative and accessible analysis of the profound changes to labour regulation under the Howard and Rudd Governments.

The authors, leading scholars and practitioners, examine both the nature and legacy of the controversial Work Choices reforms and how workplace relations are set to change under the new Fair Work legislation.

Besides an ovrview of these developments, there are separate chapters on:

  • the shifting boundaries between federal and state regulation
  • the 'safety net' enforcement processes
  • agreement-making
  • the regulation of bargaining
  • industrial actions
  • trade union rights
  • dispute resolution
  • unfair dismissal

This book is a must-have for anyone grappling with the impact of these changes.
