Intensive Workshop on April 27th - 28th, 2017

The employment relationship can end for a number of reasons – sometimes happily and other times less so. Whatever the reason, it is important that managers are aware of the process of termination of employment and the legal implications that can arise. The government has enacted New Labour laws that every employer must understand and perfectly implement. The impact of the new laws on the employment contracts and how to manage them is enormous. For example, now, you cannot terminate an employee’s contract without giving a reason.Terminating an employee’s contract is not easy especially that, one needs to ensure that the termination does not unnecessarily land your organization in court. The new labour laws are emphatic on Employers giving a reason for terminating a contract of employment. The consequences for not getting this right are gustily. You cannot afford to make mistakes as the penalty for wrongful termination of contract may be high pay.
