Employment Law Update

The legal landscape and how it affects your business, or workplace, is constantly evolving.

Our Employment Law Update brings you up to date on recent changes in legislation and also highlighting what’s planned to come into force in the future; a key consideration for business planning.

Our experienced trainers explain the changes in a practical and straightforward way which will help you understand the legal changes and, importantly, the impact for your organisation.


Business need

Employment law can be a complex area of legislation and is regularly changing and modified. Legislation can be introduced, amended or repealed and when consultations and case law are added, it can be a challenge for those running a business or involved in managing employees.

Keeping abreast of issues helps you steer your business away from litigation and potential financial penalties. By gaining an understanding of the ever changing legal requirements you can develop strategies that will improve employment relations, reduce risk and increase organisational resilience.

This course, which is updated regularly, gives you a solid grounding on recent changes to legislation and provides insight into upcoming changes in the law that will enable your business to stay informed, legally compliant and well prepared.

All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.
