Closing date: 28 January 2021

This course will be delivered over four morning sessions:

This course is aimed at experienced reps, who should be ERA accredited and have a basic understanding of employment law (for example, through having attended an Introduction to Employment Law course in their region).

This course will help activists gain a good understanding of contracts of employment and member’s potential rights when facing redundancy. It will enable activists to recognise relevant legal issues when dealing with casework, campaigning and negotiating. It also covers unilateral variation of contract in the context of changing contracts; redundancy and TUPE. It does not cover unfair dismissal in the areas of capability and misconduct. To apply you must be an ERA accredited representative and be active in supporting and representing members.

There is limited availability and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

A charge of £120 will be made to your branch.
