Advanced Employment Law Practitioner CIPD
Price: QAR 875

Course details



Advanced Employment Law Practitioner is designed for experienced HR practitioners who already have a firm grasp of employment law concepts. It examines the more complex areas of law that have a direct impact on current HR practice, and using a combination of case studies and debate, it will enhance your existing knowledge, while updating you with new developments in case law and pending legislation.

Run as it features here, or run in-house where the content can be tailored to suit your organisational needs; cost effective if a number of people require training.
