Central Law Training
Full time, Part time
Earliest start date
This qualification provides a broad introduction to employment law that will enable you to confidently advise on the key aspects of the employment relationship. You will examine, in detail, employee status and other working relationships. This is relevant due to the rise of the gig economy: a concept which is repeatedly under the microscope both in the employment tribunal and the media. Having developed your knowledge to correctly identify and advise upon the relationship between parties, you will be introduced to employment contracts, their creation and the obligations arising from them.
The qualification develops the skills required to manage the termination of the employment relationship. You will be able to advise on risk and processes in relation to unfair dismissal, disciplinary and redundancy. Insights are provided into alternative dispute resolution and the use of settlement agreements. When alternatives fail, you will be guided through the main tribunal rules, procedures and what to expect at a tribunal hearing.
