After the success of this program in 2013 and 2014, PCS will again be hosting its four-part training program “Legal Basics for Emerging HR Professionals”. Given the breadth of issues HR professionals are required to deal with, it is critical for those in their formative years of HR to understand HR legal issues in a modern commercial context.
The program provides those starting out in HR with an understanding of important HR legal issues. However, it is equally suitable for those with greater levels of experience wishing to develop their HR expertise or for seasoned HR professionals seeking a refresher.
Consistent with PCS’ commitment to innovation and partnering with its clients, these sessions will not be lectures but will rather be delivered in an interactive and experiential way based on our firm’s significant expertise with high levels of participation expected from attendees.
Attendees will receive a tool-kit of documents and will develop or deepen their understanding of a range of fundamental HR legal issues, including the law from hiring to firing, the hierarchy of instruments and documents, the meaning behind certain clauses in a contract, protecting organisations and individuals from liability and what happens if it all goes wrong.
