WHY LABOUR LAW?
Labour law is vital for mediating the relationship between employers, employees as well as government and trade unions. This course will provide a summary of important principles from all the key labour Acts. These will inform on how to employ people, how to ensure compliance and what to do when things go wrong. You will learn what to extract from a sometimes complex legislation in order to suit your needs, and how to protect yourself from both the employer and the employee perspective.
