About the Journal

Employee Relations is a leading international academic journal focusing on the importance of understanding employment and HR challenges and debates within the context of contemporary national and international labour markets. This embedded understanding is key to merging organizational, management and employee needs to achieve optimum performance, commitment and effectiveness. International issues are covered in all areas of HR, employment and industrial relations. A stringent double-blind review of each paper is undertaken to ensure its relevance and validity. Employee Relations continuously receives, and welcomes, global authorship.
