The paper "Employment Relations in the United States" is an outstanding example of a management literature review. Alexander, Lewer and Gahan (2007) discuss that after the time when the Second World War ended; the American states faced a changing regulation and a new system that was related to the regulation of the employment relations and the work regulations. This is the system that was at that time very fairly organized and found to be very rational. This was the new system that was efficiently designed and organized by the major authorities in the United States.

The system included the authorization, organizational rules and regulations and this was because of the great depression and the Second World War disasters. These rules and regulations were laid down after the immediate period after the Second World War. In this system, the minimum standards were defined by the government and the authorities that helped define the standards of the labor force of the industries in the United States. However, the system had left the conditions and the terms of the employment to be set by the procedures that were set by the authorities themselves. The employment relationships Rose (2004) says that it can be seen that the employment relationship is the main factor in the work environment.

However, it can be seen that the ideology is very dynamic and is among the most discussed ideas in the work environment. The relationship is seen to be having a multifarious and diverse nature. In addition to this, it is seen that the relationship has many levels and standards. The level can be economic, financial, social, political and even psychological.   Figure 1: the employment relationships The content of the employee relations There are three parts of employee relations.
