'Employee Relations' is a relatively new term which broadens the study
of industrial relations to include wider aspects of the employment relationship,
including non-unionized workplaces, personal contracts and socio-emotional, rather than
contractual, arrangements. This is an area with diverse ideological underpinnings and
political ramifications. Governments have taken an active part in determining its conduct.
In Europe, harmonization is leading to the establishment of works councils across the EU,
giving a new role for collective representation.
