This chapter explores the meaning and scope of employment relations, and how it has evolved as field of study as well as an area of management practice. It then considers how macro-level contextual factors, such as the nature of employment practices at a national level, as well meso-level sectoral contextual factors influence the regulation of work in the construction industry, and in particular the notion of the 'flexible firm'.
