Description of module content:

The module establishes a theoretical framework for the critical analysis of labour relations, the political significance of emergent issues and the impact of changing contexts on national trends and organisational practice (in particular arising from membership of the E.U.). The development of new approaches to labour relations, in both private and public sectors and the influence of government on these, is of particular relevance. The module covers both an analysis of trends and an examination of management in the workplace, focusing on the contribution that effective management of labour relations makes to the achievement of key business objectives and organisational change. Key skills and competences are identified in developing policies and procedures, handling conflict (discipline & grievance, collective disputes), negotiation. The module explores the implications of developments in employment legislation and assumes some prior knowledge of Employment Law.

Learning Outcomes for module:

LO1: Analyse different perspectives on the employment relationship and critically evaluate theories of conflict and how to manage it.

LO3: Analyse the dynamics of the employment relationship (roles of parties, structures and processes) and the ways in which these are influenced by national and international context.
LO4: Evaluate alternative approaches to labour management and make recommendations appropriate to the needs of differing organisations
