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.

Industry Reviews

As safety management broadens itself to cover psychosocial risks, it increasingly overlaps industrial relations, a workplace element that, with luck and a bit of work, could have been avoided by OHS professionals in the past. That is no longer the case and OHS professionals must understand how industrial relations changes will affect their own workplace and how they do their jobs. The Fair Work book is a great place to start. - Safety at Work Blog - Kevin Jones - An OHS Look at the Fair Work book
