Hi to all seniors,

Im an undergrad student who have difficulties regarding HRM

here are a few questions and hope that some of you could have me solve them.

Question 'The employment relationship can be regarded as power relationship' explain its views and analyse its consequences for HRM.

1. Is it correct that i assumed "employment relationship as Industrial relationship and unions whom practice bargaining power, hence can be regarded as power relationship--> pluralism....?

2. HRM in the question ... means HRM policies or HRM unitarist?

how do you differentiate HRM policies and HRM unitarist? or are they the same?

and i dun quite get what it meant "its consequences for HRM" from the question..

im so sorry if i have so many questions.. its too confusing ..

i have been writing the essay based on the assumption of Industrial relations VS HRM.. which lead to conflict and how to reconciled them... but suddenly have a feeling that i wrote out of point..

please advice me.. thank you very much... need reply ASAP

I quite agree with ur confusion... I am quite confused myself....

- I think u can interpret it in any 1 or all the ways. Its the industrial power struggle as well at the power struggle between different groups - HR / Account / Sales.,etc or it could also be about the formal as well as informal power centres within an organisation or just as simple as boss & subordinate, or the organisation againts the individual employee & the power they hold, etc.

If u consider peers within the purview of 'employement relationship' then even the power equation between 2 peers can be one perspective

- With respect to the individual or a group / concept of HRM, it seems more likely that it is talking on the conceptual level. But u can may be put in a few lines regarding the impact on a & of a HR individual as it would percolate down.

On the whole I think the question is quite inane or at the very least incomplete. In absence of a hypotheses or some reason for studying the same, the Q is quite scattered and too widely subject to interpretation.

So do not worry whether u get good marks on it or not. If u need to speak to your professors on it, tell them tat it defies the 'systems theory' of studying something in its current format. u may also very subtly suggest that they need to reword it at the least

Dont worry, best of luck
