Description

"Death of Labour Law?" questions the on-going relevance of labour law in Australia and other Western industrialised societies in the twenty-first century. The tension between economic flexibility for business and social stability for workers is set against the backdrop of the Rudd government's 'Forward with Fairness' reform agenda and similar proposals for change in the European Union. Martin Vranken retraces the birth and subsequent growth of labour law and argues that it is essentially a mechanism for employee protection, not labour market regulation. "Death of Labour Law?" offers a fresh perspective on the current debate about labour law and the role of the state in Australian industrial and workplace relations.show more
