Justice Issues and Disadvantaged Workers

Project Director

Associate Professor Christina Cregan


The overall aim of this project is to investigate justice issues in the contemporary Australian workplace. There are three separate studies. These comprise an investigation into the wages and conditions of Vietnamese textile outworkers in Victoria , an analysis of Australian sex tourism, and a study of justice outcomes of employment contracts that characterise the modern organisation.
