Beyond the workplace: how civil society organisations attempt to exercise regulatory influence over work and employment

Stephen Williams, Brian Abbott

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    This chapter examines how civil society organisations exercise regulatory influence from the outside of workplaces. Although such organisations are not new, there is growing recognition that the regulatory environment in respect of work and employment has become more complex, with the diminution of joint regulation through collective bargaining allowing space for the emergence of alternative regulatory arrangements, including those involving civil society organisations.
