ilestones are important; for they remind us of life altering events. Many remember their first job and lessons learned there which impacted on how they approached their careers as well as the choice of degree or study programme. The birth of a child, marriage and home ownership are also milestones in our lives. 1937 will always be remembered for the Riots instigated change in the labour landscape in Barbados and 1941 the first registered trade union; the Barbados Workers’ Union. The third edition of the Employment Compass came alive against the backdrop of significant milestones for Barbados and the Labour environment. 2015 will be remembered as the year the first case was presented to the Employment Rights Tribunal and in 2016 Barbados celebrates 50 years as an independent nation, while the Barbados Employer’s Confederation celebrates 60 years of existence. This edition is once again a compilation of scholarly articles which review trends in the labour environment and highlight legal issues. The aim is to provide relevant and useful information for students, human resource practitioners and industrial relations specialists in a concise and reader friendly manner. I trust that you find this issue to be an informative resource and reference document. With warmest thanks,

In this Edition:
