RELATED FAQ:

Learning about labour laws with labour law training is crucial because labour law establishes the balance of power between the employer and the worker.

Labour law course programs can set up and preserve the processes by which workers are recognized as ‘equal’ partners in negotiations about their working conditions etc.

Labour law training can prevent the employer from dismissing the worker without a good cause and make the employees aware of their rights.

Yes, it can. FYI, the four labour laws include:

  • Payment of Wages Act
  • Minimum Wages Act
  • Payment of Bonus Act, 1965 and
  • Equal Remuneration Act.

In the labour law program, our introductory course includes Definition, Ratio Decidendi and Obitar Dicta, Sources, Judicial and quasi-judicial laws, Laws related to Contracts and Employment Bonds, Rights & duties, etc.

The two main goals of labour legislation are to protect workers’ health, safety, and welfare, as well as to maintain good relations between employers and employees.

HR professionals are always dealing with labour legislation. When it comes to labour and employment legislation, they are the first line of defence as well as offense. Lawyers are brought in considerably later, when there is less space for manoeuvring. This is why HRs need to learn about labour laws.

Anyone ranging from key decision makers in the enterprise landscape to compliance specialists, HR professionals and labour law practitioners can opt for the training process.

In our labour law module, the trainer will give you specific attention and instruction, as well as comments on the quality of your training assessments.

The course prepares you for a variety of real-world tasks that HR managers, directors, in-house legal teams, and other professionals are expected to complete. After completing the course, you will have the same level of practical expertise as a junior employment lawyer at a top law firm after a year or two of experience. You’ll also gain strategic legal acumen at the leadership level, which will help you make smarter decisions.
