Introducing Employment Relations

A Critical Approach

Third Edition

Steve Williams

  • Written in a focussed and accessible style, this text is supported by a wealth of carefully designed learning features including insight into practice boxes, international perspective boxes, and discussion questions. These learning tools ensure students fully understand key topics, and are able to check and re-inforce their knowledge throughout.
  • Organised thematically, the book adopts a broad perspective to explore how employment relations operates in the twenty-first century, and also addresses the implications of the recent financial crisis on employees and organisations alike. The book includes coverage of the 'fair pay' and 'living wage' campaigns, as well as the implications of pay 'freezes', flexible working arrangements, and reduced working hours.
  • This text offers up-to-date coverage of contemporary real-world issues such as employee engagement, migration and the relevance of trade unions. This is coupled with a critical approach that goes beyond traditional employment regulation to tackle how the employment relationship is both experienced and contested by employees around the world.
