Formatted abstract This thesis examines the practice and policy of Australian firms toward employee reports. Motivations for firms to voluntarily produce employee reports are developed within a political cost framework. It was proposed that more politically sensitive firms will produce employee reports in order to reduce the costs imposed on the firm by employees.

A survey of Australian firms was undertaken to determine their policy towards employee reports and to compare and contrast the employee reports that are being produced. Tests were conducted on a number of firm characteristics to determine whether more politically sensitive firms were producing employee reports.

It was found that firms with a greater number of employees and seen to have the ability to pay are more likely to produce employee reports. This study provides a starting point for the investigation of current employee reporting by firms.
