The workplace and employment law specialisation provides students with a thorough grounding in labour law and is relevant to those working or aiming to work in this area.

This specialisation aims to develop knowledge of workplace, employment, discrimination and human rights law, and address issues of globalisation and organisational change. For non-lawyers working in law-related fields (industrial relations practitioners, human resource practitioners, industrial officers, management personnel etc.) this specialisation offers a formal course of training to gain an advanced level of knowledge in the global workforce. The topics covered in the diverse units include collective bargaining agreements, individual contracts, occupational health and safety, electronic workplace law, international human rights and discrimination.
