Course Overview

Employment Law Training

The Employment Act is the key legislature governing employment contracts in Singapore. It stipulates the basic terms and conditions of employment that organisations must abide by. It is essential for any HR practitioners and anyone who has to operate the Employment Act in the workplace to have an in-depth understanding of its interpretation and application. An up-to-date knowledge of the law will keep your organisation from infringements. In addition, it will help you make timely advice and quality decision for management.

This course is designed to keep you up-to-date on the legislative and regulatory changes that influence organisations. After the course, you will be confident to interpret the Act and apply it correctly. For business owners and employers, this would keep you well-advised to ensure that your business is in order and compliant with employment regulations.

After the workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the legislation that governs human capital relations in Singapore and its provisions
  • Interpret the Employment Act and its clauses competently, and apply them correctly
  • Appreciate the implications of various provisions
  • Keep up to date with the latest amendments to the Act
