Since 2006, Thomson Reuters has produced a growing list of publications relating to employment, IR & workplace relations.
We have met ongoing change with timely and useful commentaries, some of which are now included in the 2013 Mid-Year Sale (until 28 June), including Independent Work Contracts by Joellen Riley (pub: Aug 2007. Now $31.98 incl gst (60% disc from $79.95rpp; save $47.97)
Since the defeat of the Howard Government’s Work Choices policy at the 2007 Federal election, Thomson Reuters has been proud to publish titles that practitioners could turn to in times of changing workplace law. “Transition to Forward with Fairness” (July 2008; usually $69.95, now $27.98 incl gst) by Forsyth, Creighton, Gostencnik & Sharard and “Navigating the Fair Work Laws” (Nov 2010; usually $130, now $52 incl gst) by Forsyth, Gostencnik, Roche & Parker are two of those titles included in our Mid-Year Sale at a 60% discount until 28 June 2013.
Thomson Reuters provides IR / HR and employment law practitioners with a range of treatments for their practice needs.
New editions of classic texts are published alongside commentaries focussed on the specific reforms, helping you bring all the pieces together.
For five years, workplace relations change has been constant. You had to negotiate your way through Work Choices and then change direction with Forward with Fairness. At last, with the Federal Election behind us, you can approach Fair Work with confidence that it is here to stay for some time.
And that means you need to know more than the name of the legislation. You need to work in the system.
Navigating the Fair Work Laws, from the dedicated team of Forsyth, Gostencnik, Parker & Roach, helps you do just that.

A number of Australia’s leading employer associations have called on the Federal Government to make significant amendments to the Fair Work Act, claiming that they are unable to identify where and how the system is meeting the Government’s objective of delivering productivity growth and sustainable businesses.
Led by ACCI, the employer bodies have raised concerns about matters such as cost increases and reduced flexibility arising from the new modern awards; bargaining outcomes that fail to delivery productivity improvements; increased union activism, particularly through the use of rights of entry and protected industrial action; and a rise in unfair dismissal claims and the need for businesses to pay ‘go away’ money in order to settle claims.
By Anthony Forsyth, co-author with Val Gostencnik, Jacqueline Parker and Rosemary Roach, of “Navigating the Fair Work Laws”, which is publishing this week by Thomson Reuters. The book includes chapters examining in detail the Fair Work Act provisions relating to enterprise agreement-making, good faith bargaining, and protected industrial action.
