Course Introduction

For Human Resource (HR) professionals, it is essential that they possess sound knowledge of local labour policies and legislation of the territory where they practise. More importantly, the ability to apply this knowledge across the life-cycle of HR functions and situations enables HR professionals to effectively support the businesses and workforce that they serve.

The national HR certification framework identifies Labour Policies and Legislation as one of the Foundational competencies of future-ready HR professionals. This is incorporated as part of the IHRP Certification.


Course Objectives

This 2-day workshop focuses on enhancing the participant’s knowledge and application on laws relating to employment in Singapore. This is an IHRP accredited course that aligns to the Labour Policies and Legislation competency covered in the IHRP Certification.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have a better understanding of the labour legislation & policies and their practical applications. It will increase their confidence and effectiveness in dealing with employment law related issues/disputes and enhance their ability to ensure compliance of the various legislation.
