Employment and Workplace Relations in Australia Guide 2018

05 February 2018 | Australia

The 2018 edition of our annual Guide to Employment and Workplace Relations in Australia has been published, providing a comprehensive and practical overview of Australian employment regulation.

The Guide is 264 pages and is intended as a reference tool for in-house counsel, line managers and HR professionals to obtain quick answers to the most common employment issues. Our summary of National Employment Standards and modern awards will be particularly helpful in gaining an immediate understanding of the key tenets of Australian employment regulation.

Chapters on transfer of business, global mobility and engaging independent contractors will be useful in dealing with cross border transactions and business mergers and acquisitions. Our 2018 guide also highlights proposals to expand whistleblower protections and the more prescriptive regulation of Australian trade unions.

The Guide is a product of the strength of our firm’s national team of Employment, Industrial Relations and Safety lawyers who have contributed to it.
