PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR LAWS3446 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, SEMESTER 2 2013
PRESCRIBED TEXT FOR MLL342 AT DEAKIN, SEMESTER 2 2013

Written by leading academic labour lawyers, The Law of Work, now in its second edition, presents a principled approach to its subject matter and offers a re-evaluation of the nature, scope, and importance of employment and labour law. It continues to be the most insightful, critical and up-to-date text in this area.

The book reflects the authors' conviction that social and economic context is of critical importance to an understanding of the law. Its major themes of contract and co-operation, work and social citizenship, and freedom of association provide the basis for the analysis and critique of the most significant tribunal decisions, cases, and legislative provisions.
