Certificate in Employment Law

The TUC Certificate in Employment Law is designed for union representatives who have already completed the TUC Stage 1 Union Representatives Course or its union equivalent. This is a practical training course, designed for trade union workplace reps. It approaches the law from this perspective and its principal concern is how knowledge of and confidence in using employment law can improve workplace bargaining. The Employment Law Certificate has been designed to help reps understand the full range of laws that affect working people including facility time, equality, dismissal,employment tribunals, redundancy and TUPE, amongst others. It is not aimed at legal professionals or the finer points of technical interpretation of law.
