Formatted abstract
This thesis examines the implications for the labour market on the growth of superannuation coverage. There are three major aims.

The first is to illustrate how superannuation has become an increasingly important component of labour on-costs. In particular, the role of the superannuation guarantee charge and its contribution to on-costs will be examined.

The second is to examine the effect that superannuation, as an additional labour on-cost has upon the demand for labour. This will be achieved by using regressions to test the empirical relationship between labour demand and superannuation on an aggregate as well as an industry level.

The third is to examine the effect that superannuation, as an additional labour on-cost has upon the supply and participation decisions of individuals. Regressions which test these empirical relationships are constructed on an aggregate and industry level. Gender differences will also be taken into consideration.
It will be concluded that superannuation is a significant labour on-cost that affects the labour demand, supply and participation decisions of individuals.
