Abstract This research report provides a summary and review of research published over the period 1997-2008 on the impact of the reforms to employment relations legislation which occurred under the Coalition government, and is based on an earlier report published under a similar title. 1 The report is not a legal analysis per se, although it does include published studies carried out by labour lawyers. Rather, it aims to assess what practical impact the Coalition's legislative program is seen to have had upon aspects of labour market and employment relations institutions, arrangements and behaviour; an assessment, then, not of why and how the law changed in a technical sense, but of what the research has to tell us about the consequences and outcomes of legal change.
