Abstract:
The issue of working patterns is increasingly the subject of international debate, for example in the UK, Canada, the EU and Australia. There has been growing concern from social commentators and church leaders, as well as from trade unions and politicians, about social impacts of long and unpredictable working hours.

The objective of this report is to seek to establish whether there is a link between changes in Australian working patterns and aspects of wellbeing associated with relationships, particularly those in families, but also including friendships and participation in the broader community. It is intended that the output of this work will provide valuable input to broader community debate about working time and patterns, as well as provide an analytical foundation for family and community impact assessment and policy development.
