This unit aims to develop advanced knowledge and skills for HR practitioners and middle to senior managers in managing all facets of the relationship between employers and employees in the Australian context, including industrial matters, occupational health and safety, equitable treatment and the management of performance. It also aims to give students an appreciation of some of how employment relationships are managed by Australia's near neighbours.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
