People, Work and Employment (WORK5002)
UNIT OF STUDY
This is the foundational unit in the Graduate Certificate/Graduate Diploma/Master of Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations and should be taken in the student's first semester of study in this program. The unit provides an integrated overview of the social, legal, psychological, ethical and strategic dimensions of work and paid employment. The learning content also combines broad knowledge of these dimensions with a depth of knowledge in a select number of topical human resource and industrial relations issues. As such the unit provides a foundation for the suite of elective units in industrial relations, human resource management, and organisational studies available in the program. In addition, the unit provides the essential preparatory knowledge and skills for studying work and employment in an academic context.
