This unit builds on the more general studies of human resource management contained in the other suite of post graduate offerings by focussing on the specific requirements of HR managers in ensuring their organisations comply with the array of regulatory requirements in operation in Australia. As such, the unit aims to equip students with a sound knowledge of employer and employee rights and responsibilities, from the vantage point of practicing HR professionals, not as lawyers. Overall, the unit aims to develop a critical understanding of these issues, in terms of a deeper understanding of the role of the state in overseeing/defining the employment relationship.
