Thursday - Friday 

9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Labor Relations for Managers is designed to cover all the facets of critical labor relations (LR) functions in relation to other Human Resource (HR) activities, where legal technicalities are of required observance.  As managers, you are responsible in creating a work environment that legally complies with labor laws even without the assistance of HR managers.

The usual missing link in the HR practice, which is the technical legal side of HR, is profoundly covered and focused in the program. As non legal HR and LR practitioners, be guided on how to effectively deliver your services without the direct assistance of a lawyer.


After the course, you will:

1. Have a clearer grasp of labor standard law as it interacts with labor relations law;

2. Appreciate a thorough understanding on the issue of employee’s rights and the limitation to the concept of management prerogative; and

 3. Determine the rudimentary procedures required by law in labor disputes.
