An Introduction to UK Employment Law

Course Overview

This two week online, interactive, and fully tutored module will offer an introduction to UK employment law and enable you to perform a review of your practice contracts and written documents.

Do you understand the basic legalities of an employment contract? Has a staff member ever asked you about something in their contract? Do you recruit and manage employees in your practice?

Knowledge and application of employment legislation is necessary at any level of personnel management, yet can be a confusing and rather daunting topic.

This is a vital module for anyone who is in a position of managing or employing people, or influencing people-related processes in practice, and will offer a sound basis for moving onto further topics covering staff management issues.

We will look at: European law and how it is formulated, Employment Tribunals – how they work and potential outcomes. Why contracts are necessary, and what forms the contract; revising and issuing contracts
