Unit rationale, description and aim

This unit outlines the body of law that applies to the employment relationship including the roles of employers and employees in occupational health and safety; the workers compensation system; the requirements for effective rehabilitation programs and the role of workcover/worksafe authorities. Understanding the legal ramifications in an employment situation is a fundamental skill required by HRM professionals. Using relevant case and statute law, this unit will explore the relationship between theory and practice and determine the impact of HRM involvement at each stage in the employment relationship. The legal processes that relate to industrial tribunals are considered in greater detail in Employment Relations. Issues involving human rights and international conventions will also be considered.
