Course Description

This unit provides learners with an understanding and appreciation of how the law applies to Human Resources and the knowledge and skills to develop an industry and sector based focus on their influence to everyday HR operations. This Unit will consider three main areas of law that have an operational control over HR functionality and also the main areas of legislation to which HR administrative procedures must adhere. This Unit will allow learners to develop an understanding of the core legislation and the application of that legislation through examples of common application in the HR function. The range of examples will include those undertaken on a daily basis and will reflect the core interaction that takes place between the HR officer, the employer and the employee. This Unit will focus on the function of the legal aspects of Human Resources and the application of law throughout the HR administrative function and the importance of HR officers adhering to the obligations and stipulations of the law of contract as it applies to the relationship between the employee and the employer.

An industry and sector focus lies at the heart of this Unit and learners are encouraged to appreciate common activities undertaken within a typical office HR environment and those activities students would expect to take part in. This unit is about achieving a working and practical awareness and understanding of how to undertake HR functions according to best practice and influenced by legal controls. Learners will also be encouraged to appreciate the need for those controls and the advantages that they bring both to the HR officer, the HR Department and to the employee
