ICS Learn Introduce New Employment Law Masterclass
To help managers and HR professionals develop their employment law knowledge, we’re launching a new Employment Law masterclass in London.
The importance of managers and HR professionals having up-do-date knowledge of the law can’t be overstated. There are increasingly severe consequences for failing to adhere to these laws and employees are ever more aware of their rights.
Since 2016, the number of complaints received by the Employment Tribunal has risen by over 35%.
In 2019, almost 9,000 of these tribunals were won by the claimant, and a further 235,000 were referred to Acas for conciliation. The largest award given was £416,015 and the average award was £26,148.
It’s clear to see that businesses falling foul of these laws risk footing a huge bill – and that a gap in employment law knowledge can have devastating consequences.
That’s why we’ve created our brand-new Essentials of Employment Law Masterclass.
Aimed at managers and early-career HR professionals, this full-day class covers the most important topics in contemporary employment law, including discrimination, dismissals, working time and employment status.
The content has been written by Kathy Daniels, renowned employment law expert, ICS Learn tutor, and author, and each topic is supported by current case studies to illustrate the theory in action.
Speaking on the importance of employment law knowledge, our Director of Skills and Education Sean McCready said, “This is an area of study that shouldn’t be neglected as mistakes can drastically impact the organisation.
“With a focus on the key areas of employment law that managers and HR professionals will face day-to-day, this course will equip delegates with the essential information they need to protect their colleagues and their organisation.”
The event takes place in at De Vere West One in Marylebone, London, on the 20th of February. There are only 15 spaces available – book now to secure yours.
