CIPD Foundation Award in Managing Employment Relations

  • STUDY MODE Part-Time

What will I do?

Managing the employment relationship effectively is a key part of the role of the human resources (HR) practitioner. This unit aims to introduce a number of aspects of this task and to provide an introduction to employment law within the context of employee relations. It starts with an explanation of the employment relationship and the key parties that are involved within it. It then focuses on different aspects of HR activity, looking at good practice and legal requirements within each activity. It is recognised that learners need to have a basic understanding of employment law to enable them to operate effectively, but given this is a broad and complex area, it is acknowledged that this unit only aims to provide learners with the basic knowledge and assumes no prior understanding of employment law.

On completion of this unit, learners will:
1. Understand the impact of employment law at the start of the employment relationship.
2. Understand the main individual rights that the employee has during the employment relationship.
3. Understand the issues to address at the termination of the employment relationship.
