This course introduces students to current debates on the various theoretical underpinnings of employment law, which include the freedom of contract theory, rights-based theories and theories in equity. Upon an examination and evaluation of these competing theories, the course moves on to analyse the transplantation of common law principles in regulating the individual employment relationship in selected common law jurisdictions. Students complete their study by examining the role of the International Labour Organisation and the impact of international norms and treaties on the domestic laws of selected jurisdictions.
