Workplace relations is the
term used to cover working conditions such as rates of pay, annual
leave, sick leave and long service leave, amongst other things.
It should be noted that the majority of South Australian employees
are now covered by the Commonwealth
Fair Work Act 2009.
Employees associate Industrial Relations with Unions,
Industrial Awards, and labour laws that set the conditions under
which we work. This includes our pay, safety, employment security
and opportunities for training.
For employers it is about negotiations and relationships
between workers and business owners/managers to work towards increased
productivity and improved product quality in exchange for better
conditions of employment for workers.
