Employee/Industrial Relations
This is the elephant in the room, I don’t cover this topic and I’d like to explain why. The legislative frameworks vary enormously from state to state, and country to country. You’ll find for example that people with this HR focus do well, however in my experience they do tend to remain within the one jurisdiction be that a state or country. So rather than cover this topic and potentially provide information which isn’t relevant to your state or country, I focus on areas that I’ve been able to practice across very different legislative environments.
