Fiji is rife with disputes. Like most communities it has disputes that cover a wide variety of areas such as neighbourhood disputes, family disputes, commercial disputes and environmental disputes. But it is the area of industrial relations that generates the most disputes in Fiji. These disputes are quite serious in terms of their outcomes because, unlike Australia, Fiji has no social security safety net. If a Fijian loses his or her job they have no source of financial support to fall back on.
