INTRODUCTION TO EMPLOYMENT LAW

Employment Law in Northern Ireland continues to change at a rapid pace.  This course provides an overview of existing and new employment law as it relates to employees.  Due to the subject’s increased relevance and importance in today’s employment market, and in response to comments from past attendees, the course is now run over a two day period to maximise attendee input and participation.

This course is aimed at advisers and trade union representatives whose job involves advising on employees’ rights including pay and pay related issues, holidays, maximum working hours and breaks, unfair dismissal
and redundancy.
