All of the Elephant team are HR & employment law experts as well as being engaging facilitators. We promise we won’t lecture you!
The workshop covers not just 13 pieces of legislation but also the key points around restructuring and disciplinary procedures. You’ll cover:
You’ll leave with a comprehensive (but not so long you’ll never look at it again!) workbook that covers all the key points of the law as well as HR pointers on other policies and processes that link in.
We also cover recent employment law changes.
Employment lawyers are able to see things as black and white -
The bad news is that this means it’s not just a question of learning the law – but it’s also about learning what HR challenges each piece of legislation raises and different ways you can overcome these! The good news is that Essential Employment Law teaches you both the legislation and case law, but also how to apply it in real life.
We also promise you’ll have some fun learning. Our employment law training always receives fantastic feedback from those who attend who say that they get real value from getting answers to all their questions (however strange or unusual!) and really enjoy the whole day as well as learning lots. Our facilitators all have significant experience in employment law but also how to apply it to many and various situations -
If you want to know the essentials, then this is the employment law training workshop for you.

“Learning about justifications re some of the case law – good to know why a decision was made, course was awesome thank you”
