About this Unit

This unit focuses on the major principles that underpin employment law, the defences which are available to employers and the remedies that claimants seek when they bring their cases to court. It examines the more common issues relating to employment law which arise in organisations with a view to preparing a defence or helping to settle claims ahead of a hearing. Integral to this is the legal system, the main sources of law and the evolution of contemporary employment regulation in the UK.

You will explain the major sources of employment law and its evolution, the role and function of the courts and other employment law institutions and the principles of law in the fields of precedent, vicarious liability and continuity of employment. You will cover the Equality Act and its application, including interpretation of the protected characteristics aimed at protecting workers from unlawful acts of discrimination. You will analyse the principles that underpin contracts of employment and debate the principles of wrongful, constructive and unfair dismissal. Finally, you will summarise the law in relation to health and safety at work and personal injury, regulation on hours and wages, maternity and parental employment rights and the regulations relating to confidentiality at work.
