The integrity of the people profession is dependent upon evidence-based and principle-led decision-making. Awareness of the ever-evolving landscape and ability to implement employment law is intrinsic to ethical practice and fair outcomes.

This online course provides practical insights into the latest employment law changes, bringing learners up-to-date with case law, legislation and anticipated developments. It is essential for professionals with existing employment law knowledge or experience committed to maintaining their proficiency.

The highly topical programme content reflects current and emerging aspects of employment law, potentially covering (but not limited to) contracts of employment, working time, family-friendly law, impact of Brexit, TUPE, unfair dismissal, redundancy or settlement agreements.

The opportunity to engage with a legal specialist and participate in discussions with like-minded professionals will result in increased awareness of the complexities of employment law, confidence in sharing latest thinking and the ability to assess law changes in the context of an organisation.
