This course focuses on the employment relationship, the conflicts inherent to that relationship and the processes used to resolve these conflicts and manage the relationship.
In the era of globalisation, an increasing internationalisation of markets, supply chains and production activities – and with many organisations needing to be competitive internationally as well as locally – the employment relationship is subject to a much wider range of influences than has traditionally been the case. These influences and their implications for employee relations are examined in depth in this course.
