Workplace Flexibilities/Work and Family

Program Code: 

Work and family issues have been a hot topic in both industrial relations and human resource management since the 1980s in Australia. Research covers a wide range of areas, including paid parental leave, flexible working arrangements to enable women and men to combine work and caring roles, the regulation of work and family provisions such as through collective bargaining, work and family in specific industries, managers and work and family, and how parents use their time. Future research proposals on any of these – or related topics – are welcome.
