If you have employment law or employment relations responsibilities as part of your role, and need some more advanced training, then this workshop is for you. We will take you through some of the more complex ER legal issues and processes that you need to know. Elephant workshops are practical, outcome-based learning sessions so you’ll leave with useful, real-life tools, templates and answers to use when you get back to work. We also have some great discussions and a bit of fun (yes even learning employment law!).

We also answer any questions you have with practical solutions and ideas you can really use.

What people say about our training:


“For me the whole day was useful to embed my knowledge – it was an excellent course.”


“The workshop altogether was great! Nikki has been an absolute star of a facilitator and Angela and Jessica who came to speak were awesome as well. Altogether a very beneficial and good quality training day! Out of tons of workshops and trainings that I have attended in the past 10+ years, this was definitely one of the higher rated ones for me ”


“The seminar was interactive and although professional, was still quite a relaxed environment. The Elephant team really know their stuff and are happy to answer every little niggling question I had during the breaks.”


“I enjoyed the real life examples of what could happen, the different ways people can react and strategies to work with that”.


“Great case studies. The presenters were willing to answer questions and give examples. They involved the group and kept everyone on course.”
