Want to know what’s so great about National Workplace Relations? It brings together the laws regulating workplace relations from around the nation and then explains and clarifies how these laws actually work in practice.
Everyone should know the DOs and DON’Ts when it comes to employee and employer relations. I for one, and I’m sure I’m not the only one, have often wondered whether certain workplace behaviours would be considered acceptable or not. More recently, with the global economic downturn, I’ve wondered about the legitimacy of redundancies and what constitutes an unfair dismissal (and who is permitted to make a claim for unfair dismissal). With this area of law undergoing significant change over the last few years, I’ve also wondered about how modern awards are really working, whether industrial dispute procedures have changed and what’s happening with the “equal pay” debate.
For all of these questions, whether you’re asking them from an employee, employer, human resources, lawyer or union perspective, you can turn to National Workplace Relations for answers.
What’s in it?
National Workplace Relations contains the main Federal legislation (ie the Fair Work Act 2009 and related legislation), related Federal legislation on independent contractors, the building and construction industry, trade practices law, tax and superannuation and paid parental leave, and State and Territory legislation on a range of issues such as long service leave, education and training, public holidays, workers’ compensation etc. In addition, you also get access to the former Workplace Relations Act 1996 (and if you are an online subscriber, you get point-in-time versions of the Workplace Relations Act). You also have access to the Acts, Regs and Rules you’ll need when appearing before Fair Work Australia, the Federal Magistrates Court or the Federal Court. On top of all of this, you have expert commentary explaining how the legislation has been applied in practice, together with casenotes, case digests, comparative tables and precedents. What more could you want?
