Training Overview

Recession-proof yourself with an Employment Law Certification.

In 2024, upskilling is the best way to build immunity from the looming recession that has already prompted thousands of layoffs. Demonstrable
professional knowledge can help you justify an inflation-busting raise, earn a promotion, and enhance your job security.


Businesses face dire consequences when they violate employment laws, including incurring legal fees, settlements, back pay, penalties, and fines. You cannot afford to take these legal, financial, and
reputational risks. Fortunately, possessing a comprehensive understanding of employment law not only shields your organization but also enhances your career prospects, making you an invaluable asset in navigating these complex legal waters.


Our Employment Law for HR Certification program will enable you to:

  • Explore the significant legal issues affecting employment

  • Protect your organization from potential legal liability
