In the past decade or so, the concerns of the human resources manager and the personnel officer have become increasingly entangled with legal regulation. This review article covers a number of important developments in the field of employment law during 1991. The discussion is arranged under a number of headings: the legal nature of the employment relationship; sources of the employment contract (unfair or wrongful dismissal at common law); statutory unfair dismissal; occupational health and safety; and statutory initiatives in the employment law area. 1992 Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI)
