Abstract

Legal and social developments have impacted on the employment security and life options for employees. Much of this change derives from a corporate emphasis on unitarist management notions, Friedmanite notions of individualism, and a preoccupation of corporations with short-term financial outcomes. For many employees, changed work practices have fundamentally altered the nature of work. Pressure is increasing for corporations to exhibit greater social responsibility. Such concerns are relevant in the area of employment relations.
