Employee Relations Understanding the Employment Relationship

Heftet / 2003 / Engelsk
This exciting new text represents a new generation in employment relations. Recognizing that ER has moved on, the authors take the employment relationship as the central concept and examine the issues from `inside the employment relationship, looking out' rather than the traditional approach of looking at the factors that impinge upon the employment relationship. While the basic approach is value free, every opportunity is taken to highlight alternative ways of thinking about the Employment Relationship.
