Murray, Peter A. and Kramar, Robin and McGraw, Peter, eds. (2011) Women at work: research, policy and practice. Tilde University Press, Melbourne, Australia. ISBN 978-0-7346-1137-6

Abstract

This book presents a new and contemporary look at the critical and important issues associated with women at work. It examines these issues at the level of government, of business, and of the individual, and this enables an evaluation of the progress of women at work within the institutional and legislative framework in Australia. Women at Work deals with a number of emerging trends such as superannuation, pay inequality, gender regimes, negotiation, and contemporary issues in leadership. It also examines more recently changes in legislation such as the introduction of the Fair Work Act 2009, the impact on women at work based on these changes and the proposed changes to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act. Although the scope of this work relates to generic issues for women at work in Australia, the content has far reaching policy and practice implications for women in most countries, particularly women at work in the Asia Pacific region. Women at Work represents the most up-to-date research in the area, and covers contemporary issues with an emphasis on practical application.
