This Employment Relations program at Griffith University  encompasses workplace and institutional practices and strategies, employment law, negotiation and dispute resolution, managing equity and diversity, workplace health and safety, managing rewards and performance and employment relations strategy.

It will deepen your understanding of the management of employment relations. The program will give you in-depth current knowledge in employment relations and the capacity to use that knowledge.


Graduates may assume industrial relations or human resource management positions in private, public and not-for-profit sectors.

The knowledge acquired is relevant at the workplace level (for example, those involved in enterprise bargaining and the management of staff), at peak body level (for example, those employed by employer associations and unions) and for those involved in policy formulation and implementation (for example, in state and federal departments).

You may be responsible for formulating policy and its implementation in the context of changing international, national and industry based employment practices.
