Recognising that HR practice often involves a legal dimension, this one day program has been designed to provide HR practitioners with the ability to recognise and respond to the legal aspects of common workplace issues.
- Identify the various sources of legal rights and obligations for employers and employees
- Recognise what the common law is and how it affects employment rights and obligations
- Outline where to find applicable legislation and identify which industrial instruments apply to employees
- Determine how the contract of employment, legislation and other industrial instruments interact
Organisations will benefit from a greater level of comfort with legal compliance and therefore the reduced risk of legal liability.
