IRSWA July Seminar - Unfair Dismissal
UNFAIR DISMISSAL: CLAIMS UNDER FAIR WORK, WORK CHOICES AND THE WR ACT
In conjunction with the Economic Society of Australia, the IR Society of WA was pleased to invite members to a seminar titled "Unfair dismissal claims under Fair Work, Work Choices & The Workplace Relations Act." presented by Professor Paul Oslington.
Paul Oslington is Professor of Economics at the Australian Catholic University, previously holding visiting positions at Princeton, British Columbia and Oxford Universities. He works on international trade, labour markets, the history of economic thought, and the relationship between economics and religion. His publications include the books The Theory of International Trade and Unemployment (2006) and Economics and Religion (2003), a forthcoming new edition of Jacob Viner’s The Customs Union Issue for OUP, and he has published widely in international journals.
Professor Oslington reported on the economic impact of unfair dismissal regulation under the three Acts, based on a unique and large database he and colleagues have constructed from unfair dismissal cases that have reached the courts.

IRSWA wishes to thank Curtin Graduate School of Business for hosting the event.
