The unit aims to develop in students a critical understanding of the legal principles of Australian employment law. The first part of the unit considers the distinction between employees and contractors, the formation of a contract of employment and the mutual rights and obligations under such a contract and rights on termination. The unit then considers occupational health and safety, workers' compensation and equal opportunity in employment. Finally, the unit examines how rights and obligations at work are determined collectively through awards and enterprise bargaining agreements.
