    Abstract

    This paper provides a comparative review of workplace relations law in Australia, UK and Malaysia. The review starts by looking at the history and institution of employment law, followed by the employees status, the role of implied terms within the contract of employment, and an evaluation of the development of the common law in the contract of employment. From the review, it was concluded that the common law s impact in implying implied terms into the contract of employment has become a useful vehicle of rights and duties between employers, employees and third parties. Nonetheless, the development is some countries are still less desirable and should strive to follow the example of countries where the developments of these duties are rather desirable.
