The course provides a general introduction to many aspects of workplace law. Students will broadly examine the law relating to the employer/employee relationship, including: (i) the purposes of regulation of employment and industrial relations; (ii) statutory regulation of the employment relationship and the bodies which regulate employment in Australia; (iii) categorising work relationships and recognising differences between an employment relationship and other types of work arrangements; (iv) basic employee entitlements and terms and conditions of employment; (v) sources of employment obligations - contracts, workplace agreements, statute and awards; (vi) collective bargaining and industrial action; (vii) enforcement of employment obligations; (viii) management of the employment relationship including performance management, disciplinary process, and controls on employment; (ix) workplace health and safety; (x) termination of employment, risks and remedies for termination; and (xi) workplace rights (including general protections). In addition to content, the course is designed to provide students with a practical, hands-on approach to various issues arising out of the employment relationship through a range of problem-solving exercises.
