EMPLOYMENT LAW & WORKPLACE RELATIONS SPECIALISTS

“[T]he employment relationship is also a significant social relationship, not just simply because workers have to co-operate harmoniously in the production process, but because the work environment is itself central to our culture and quality of life. Indeed, our lives often revolve aroundour work, the loss of a job can be a shattering emotional as well as economic trauma”
