Summary "The Contract of Employment, 2nd edition offers Australian lawyers the most comprehensive, systematic and intellectually rigorous treatment of the contract of employment. With more Australian cases and less UK content, it focuses more on the law as it now stands rather than the historical development of the common law. It explains general principles articulated in appellate courts, particularly the High Court. It provides more references to the statutory context of employment and places the discussion of doctrines within the ongoing academic debates about the nature, functions and operation of the employment contract." --.
