Hello. Welcome to "Employment Law for First Line Managers".
My name is Lucy Rees and I'm a non-practicing employment law solicitor.
I practiced as an employment law solicitor for approximately 15 years.
I'm now a senior lecturer at
the University of the West of England in relation
to employment law and human resource management.
In this presentation, I'm going to give you an overview of employment law.
Unfortunately, as this is just such a brief presentation,
I can't give you a detailed guide in relation to all aspects and areas of employment law.
This is because there are now so many employment laws and it's so complex.
Therefore, what I intend to do is to go through the employment relationship from
recruitment through to dismissal and highlight the employment laws that you,
as first line managers,
should be aware of.
In relation to each area of employment law,
I'll then provide you with a link to either the ACAS or the gov.uk
websites with further detailed information
and guidance in relation to that law can be found.
I'll also provide you with the name of
the statute or regulations that are relevant to that law.
