Industrial relations, gender equity and work/family balance: assessing the impact of changing law and practice in Queensland (2007–2009)

This project is designed to assess the impact of changing industrial relations law and practice on gender equity and work/family balance in Queensland. It seeks enhanced understanding of the complex relationships between industrial relations frameworks, business adaptations and outcomes for employees; focusing in particular on the way these relationships vary across sectors and regions. An innovative research design will track a panel of workplaces and their employees over three years, complementing aggregate statistics with in-depth longitudinal evidence. The research is highly significant as industrial regulation in Australia undergoes major change, and offers a new level of evidence to inform policy.'',
