Employment Contracts and the Law

Employers need to ensure that contracts of employment provide the maximum benefit to the company and ensure the flexibility that every successful company needs.

The workshop will cover

The potential pitfalls and benefits of using alternative and flexible employment arrangements, including avoiding claims of unfair employment practices and unfair dismissals. Focus will be given to permanent employment contracts, limited duration or fixed term contracts, the use of labour brokers and independent contractors and casual employment. The course will cover the impact that labour legislation such as the Main Agreement, Basic Conditions of Employment Act and the Labour Relations Act has on these contractual arrangements. Mention will be made of other beneficial flexible working arrangements contained in the Main Agreement.
