The traditional boundaries of labour law are becoming outmoded in a modern world in which active labour market participants vastly outnumber “employees”, and the world of work extends way beyond the workplace gate. There is convergence with labour market regulation. The contract of employment remains central but is no longer the sole object of studyLabour Law and Labour Market Regulation is a state of the art presentation of the latest Australian scholarship and research surrounding this seismic change.
