Essential Employment Law for NI Employers

Essential Employment Law for NI Employers

How often have managers heard the phrase, “I know my rights”? Every one of us in Northern Ireland is governed by myriad employment rights and obligations. This best-selling Essential Employment Law for NI Employers course sets out the important ones in easy to understand sections and explains how the law of contract binds these rights and obligations together.

The programme for this event has been revised to make it more interactive - but still with extensive, comprehensive notes for future reference.

What are the learning outcomes from Essential Employment Law for NI Employers?
This event is an up-to-date and comprehensive overview (and comes with equally comprehensive notes) of the main employment laws that apply in Northern Ireland, such as family-friendly rights, holiday entitlement, discrimination and dismissal law and employment protection rights. Your understanding of these employment laws will be reinforced through group exercises.

What will be covered?

  • The nature of the Contract of Employment (including employment status, agency workers and implied/expressed terms)
  • Duration of employment (including flexible working and leave entitlements)
  • Equality and discrimination issues (including all of the main rights plus fixed term and part-time working)
  • Disciplinary and grievance issues (including statutory procedures and internal rules)
  • Terminating the Employment Contract (including contractual issues, unfair dismissal rights, redundancy and other termination payments)

Who should attend?
HR professionals or other managers who want to know more about employment law, as well as solicitors relatively new to this field or those who need a refresher. This event is not suitable for those with extensive knowledge of NI employment laws.
