COURSE OVERVIEW

Employment Law is the latest outstanding addition to our Business Professional series of Courses. The administration and management of any business depends on its people, and the way they are recruited, directed, compensated and eventually released. All of this is enshrined in law, governed by legislation and administered by recognised “best practice”. Fall foul of it and you may end up in front of an Employment Tribunal, paying thousands of pounds in compensation purely through ignorance (which, incidentally, is no defence).

The very good news is that this superb course from Distance Learning Plus will help you avoid Tribunal, develop a happy, cooperative and willing workforce, and fully understand all of the processes and legislation you need to know about, including Employment Terms and Contracts, Grievance and Disciplinary procedure, managing Redundancy and much more.

Whether you’re already an effective personnel manager, want to become one, or you simply want to improve your skills in those areas, then this course is a “must have” for you.

This fascinating course focuses on the knowledge you will need to become an effective Human Resources or Personnel Manager, and details the essential facets of Employment Law you both need to be aware of, and put into practice. This helps to get your “team” on side, the business running efficiently, and perhaps more importantly stay on the right side of the law. It also helps you to refine your organisation’s goals and aspirations, and how to document and communicate them in order to stay one step ahead of potential Tribunal threats.

Better still it helps you to treat your employees fairly, protect your business from external and internal legal challenges, and ultimately save you money – some Employment Law/Tribunal claims are uncapped! Staying abreast of Employment Law issues is one of the keys to effective business leadership, whether at a team or organisational level, and you will learn it here!

WHAT WILL I LEARN ON THE COURSE?

This outstanding Employment Law course explains in detail the rules and legal framework that dictate the nature of the relationship between employer and employee. You will learn how law and legal process have developed to govern the operation of the contract of employment, which essentially lays out the nature of the relationship between employer and employee. Students successfully completing this course will have the knowledge and confidence to take the subject further, whether as a career choice (perhaps a career in law or human resources) or to enhance their current position.

We spend vast majority of our time as adults at work. If we are employed in any capacity, we are subject to Employment Law. If we are employers, we have a responsibility and both moral and legal obligations to ensure our practices comply with it. In either case this is one of those courses that will always be relevant and useful.

COURSE MATERIALS

One of the key benefits of studying Employment Law with us is that we deliver the entire package of course materials in a single dispatch. This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the course, and measure their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers breaks up and interrupts the learning process. It prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper ideas that need more thought and understanding.

    What is employment law?

    Employment law covers all employers’ rights in terms of legislation and procedure. When working in human resources in a business this covers a very similar role as human resources are there to ensure employers have all their needs met and know what rights they are entitled to.

    Why did you decide to work in human resources?

    After leaving school I went straight into employment, I was first working in customer service where I was naturally a ‘people person’. I tended to take care of my colleagues and sort out their problems if they had issues with customer’s etc. My manager noticed these skills I had and offered me a promotion to work in HR to be able to ‘look after’ employees officially.

    What is involved in human resources on a day to day basis?

    Working in Human resources requires interviewing and hiring new employees. Records are made of new and existing employees where those that work in HR have to keep up to date.

    Human resources are responsible for staff training and development and arranging training courses to ensure employees are up to date in knowledge and skills within their practice. Human resources are responsible for the full welfare of employees such as health and safety. They may also have to deal with complaints and at times deal with disciplinary.

    What are the entry requirements for working in Human resources?

    There is no specific entry requirement s to work in human resources. However, employers will look for a standard education such as five GCSE’s A*-C level, usually including maths and English and usually office experience. You would then need to be willing to work towards (or already have) a qualification in human resource management.

    What can I expect to earn working in Human resources?

    Human resources administrators can earn - £15,000 - £19,000 a year.

    Starting salaries for human resources officers can earn £18,000 -£25,000 a year.

    Human resource managers can earn £25,000 - £50, 000 a year
