Family-friendly work practices : differences within and between workplaces /

by Gray, Matthew | Australian Institute of Family Studies | Tudball, Jacqueline.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australian Institute of Family Studies 2002Summary: This study analyses the extent to which access to family-friendly work practices is influenced or determined by differential access within organisations as compared with differential access between organisations. The analysis is based upon the Australian Workplace Industrial Relations Survey 1995 (AWIRS95), a linked employee—employer data set. The linked nature of the data allows information from employers and employees to be combined, providing a unique perspective on the incentives and constraints employers face when deciding which work practices to make available to which employees. These data allow the first large-scale study in Australia of differences in access to family-friendly work practices amongst employees working in the same workplace.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
