Contractual Terms – While contracts aren’t mandatory, they do help employers and employees in many different ways. Discover the importance of issuing a statement of particulars, learn the difference between express, implied and varying terms and identify some of the different elements that make up a contract of employment.

Rights During Employment – Every employee has certain Employment Law rights when they begin work with their employer. Explore some of these rights, including working time regulations, the rules for those who work nights, rest periods and the national minimum wage for different age groups. Employees also have certain rights to leave and this module will also cover paternity, maternity and adoption leave.

Learn about the different types of dismissal, the steps that employers can take to reduce the likelihood of a claim from an employee following termination of employment and best practice for the dismissal process.
