Our summary of National Employment Standards and modern awards will be particularly helpful in gaining an immediate understanding of the key tenets of Australian employment regulation. Chapters on transfer of business, global mobility and engaging independent contractors will be useful when dealing with cross border transactions and business mergers and acquisitions.
