Stewart's Guide to Employment Law is renowned for its succinct and accessible coverage of this complex area of the law. The author's unique expertise and experience makes this a highly regarded book, and its clear and cohesive style makes it essential reading for anyone needing an introduction to employment law.This new edition looks at the impact of COVID-19 on employment law, on matters such as standing down employees, working from home, pandemic leave, and whether vaccination can be made compulsory for employees.It explains the various amendments to the Fair Work Act made or proposed by the Morrison Government, including as part of the 'Omnibus Bill' tabled in late 2020 and passed in heavily reduced form in March 2021.

It explores, in particular, changes to the definition and regulation of casual employment, as well as a major new High Court decision on the subject.The new edition discusses controversies and developments that particularly impact women in the workplace, on matters such as sexual harassment, pay equity, and leave for victims of family and domestic violence. It covers the many changes made by the Fair Work Commission in the course of its lengthy review of modern awards, and a raft of significant new cases on the determination of whether workers are employees, including in the emerging 'gig economy'.The text has been updated to incorporate other new case law, including important decisions on the making of enterprise agreements, adverse action and unfair dismissal. Reference is also made to various changes to State legislation, such as the new 'wage theft' laws in Victoria and Queensland, as well as the substantial reforms proposed in Western Australia.This new edition incorporates references to the recent High Court of Australia decision in WorkPac v Rossato (4 August 2021) and otherwise incorporates developments up to July 2021.
