“Growing unemployment, downward pressure on wages and greater uncertainty over job security inevitably increase the strain on workplace relationships and the potential for conflict” (ACAS Policy Discussion Paper ‘Riding out the storm: managing conflict in a recession and beyond’, 2010: 1).

Justify your answers with academic theory and empirical evidence.
