The introduction of new technologies into the Australian Banking Sector in the 1990s initiated numerous changes to employment arrangements in the Australian Banking industry. This conference paper examined a number of case studies of examples of new banking technologies and their employment effects. The paper identified two functional types of new banking technologies: those that assisted the centralisation of banking operations and; those that assisted the decentralisation of banking operations. Based on this analysis, the paper discussed the potential effects on employment structures in the Australian banking sector.
