An Employer’s Guide To Australian Employment Law

An essential feature of Australia’s commercial and cultural identity has been the regulation of employment. This has created significant hurdles for employers, as well as giving rise to a rich and sometimes complex area of legal practice.

While it is tempting for practitioners to indulge themselves and each other in the vagaries and complexities of the law, there is little purpose to legal resources which can only be understood by other lawyers. This book is a highly practical, detailed and in depth reference text for business owners, managers, and HR professionals, to help navigate the law surrounding employment relationships in Australia.

This book addresses all stages of the employment relationship and the legal issues that arise, including choices around types of employment, recruitment, managing performance, and disciplinary processes. Several chapters deal directly with the termination of employment, including transfer of business, redundancy, and termination for cause. After feedback from clients, this edition also includes several new chapters that address topical issues in employment such as workplace relationships, bullying, and sexual harassment. Greater attention has also been given on how employers can manage the risks and processes of employment litigation.
