The managers guide to employment law - recruitment


As far as the law is concerned, there are certain restrictions and requirements that apply before an employment relationship is formed. And even if an employment relationship is never formed, employers owe certain duties to candidates during the recruitment process, even though they may not ultimately employ them. The purpose of this course is to enable you to gain an understanding of the impact of employment law on both the recruitment process and the formation of the contract of employment.

Learning Outcomes:

The course starts with the consideration of the legal requirements applicable during the recruitment process.

  • It then moves on to consider the legal points applicable once a decision has been made to offer a particular candidate employment.
  • Finally, it looks at the way in which an employment contract is formed, and the importance of properly documenting this and any subsequent changes to the contract.
