Centre for Employment and Labour.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2010 Bibliography : p. 23-27Summary: This paper argues that in comparison to the WorkChoices regime, the Fair Work reforms constitute significant improvements, both in terms of their potential to advance the regime's effectiveness in achieving its objectives, and to promote other values of workplace regulation, including efficiency, participatory democracy, and accountability. These enhancements stem from simplified legislation and awards, a wider range of court remedies, a wider small claims jurisdiction, new inspector standing to enforce safety net contractual entitlements, enhanced emphasis on educative and persuasive compliance techniques, and greater union powers...IntroductionAvailability: (1)

Frontier justice : the global refugee crisis and what to do about it /

by Lamey, Andy.

Publisher: Brisbane, Qld. University of Queensland Press 2011Description: 406 p. : maps ; 23 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [355]-394) and index.Summary: Frontier Justice is a gripping exploration of the world-wide refugee crisis. Andy Lamey presents the story behind the radical increase in the global number of asylum seekers, set within the historical and philosophical context in which the ideas of asylum originated and evolved. Importantly, Lamey approaches the issue as a global one, presenting case studies from Australia, North America, and Europe. He follows the extraordinary efforts of a set of Yale law students who sued the US government on behalf of a group of refugees imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay; he recounts one refugee family's harrowing journey from Saddam Hussein's Iraq to contemporary Australia via the world's most dangerous ocean crossing; and he explores the fascinating case of Ahmed Ressam, the so-called Millennium bomber who filed a refugee claim in Canada before attempting to blow up the Los Angeles airport. Throughout Lamey's account, he focuses on the rights of people in search of asylum, and how those rights are routinely violated. But Frontier Justice does not merely point out problems. At the heart of the book is a new blueprint for how the rights of refugees might be enforced, and a vision of human rights that is ultimately optimistic and deeply affirmative.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Reworking the relationship between asylum and employment /

by Mathew, Penelope.

Publisher: London, U.K. Routledge 2012Description: xi, 214 p. ; 24 cm.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: Touching on the laws and practices of a wide array of countries around the globe, this book examines the extent to which refugees and asylum-seekers' right to work is protected by international human rights law. The book examines a number of key international treaties, national constitutions and some foundational cases from national courts in order to make the case that the practice of restricting refugees and asylum-seekers access to the labour market is illegal. In so doing, the author examines some intricate legal questions, such as the interpretation of the Refugee Convention's provisions restricting rights to refugees 'lawfully staying', the application of racial discrimination to citizenship distinctions, and the ways in which limitations on human rights are applicable in this context. The book also looks at some broader philosophical questions such as the meaning of equality and human dignity, and the legitimacy of the right to work. The book goes on to explore broader debates concerning migration and 'open borders' in order to unpack the fears that drive many countries' restrictive measures. Readers are invited to consider whether the world would be a better place with more freedom of movement. It is a unique stand-alone treatment of the subject and includes the Michigan Guidelines on the Right to Work.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
