Recent decades have seen a substantial increase in the extent to which the employment relationship in the UK, Eire and the EU is regulated through employment legislation. As a result, human resources (HR) professionals are now obliged to take account of legal requirements in different jurisdictions when carrying out many central aspects of their role.

They are also obliged to take responsibility for the defence and settlement of claims lodged with employment tribunals by aggrieved employees or former employees. The purpose of this unit is to introduce the major areas of employment legislation and the employment law system, focusing in particular on ways in which day-to-day HR activities are subjected to some form of regulation.

The unit is intended to provide an overview, rather than to focus in detail on the operation of specific employment laws, for those who need to understand and be able to evaluate emerging developments in the management of the employment relationship in local and international jurisdictions.


Structure of Qualification

To achieve an Intermediate Award in Human Resources, you need a total of between 3 and 12 credits. The Intermediate Award in Employment Law has 6 credits.

Key Topics

The learning outcomes for this unit are shown below. By the end of the unit, you will be able to:

  1. Understand the purpose of employment regulation and the way it is enforced in practice 
  2. Know how to manage recruitment and selection activities lawfully
  3. Know how to manage change and reorganisation lawfully
  4. Know how to manage issues relating to pay and working time lawfully
  5. Be able to ensure that staff are treated lawfully when they are at work
  6. Know how to manage performance and disciplinary matters lawfully.

This is a Level 5 programme and is equivalent in level to the second year of an undergraduate degree programme.

The Intermediate Level Awards in Human Resources are for those who:

  1. Aspire to work in HR or already work in HR and want to study a recognised undergraduate level qualification
  2. Work in an HR support role and want to formalise their experience and progress their career by developing their knowledge and skills at a higher level

If English is not your first language, you will be required to have an IELTS score of 6 or above.

As all the units form part of the Intermediate Certificate / Diploma in Human Resource Management, you can also use your Award to work towards meeting the knowledge requirements for CIPD professional membership by taking additional units to achieve the full Intermediate Certificate or Diploma. 

On completion, you'll receive a CIPD Intermediate Award in Human Resources.

Assessment for this unit is by way of a 3000 word written report.
