Amcanion cyffredinol

Labour Law is an optional module in the LLB programme. The module discusses three interrelated aspects of employment law, namely the law relating to the recruitment of staff, the law relating to the workplace and the law relating to the termination of employment. It begins by exploring how the relationship between employer and employee is created and thereafter focuses on issues of equality, safety, employment protection, and collective action. The module will also require students to adopt a comparative perspective in that they will be required to undertake independent research into aspects of employment protection in other jurisdictions.

Cynnwys cwrs

The module provides a historical outline and an evaluation of the rules of the various institutions involved. The substantive content includes contract formation, equality rights, family friendly policies, employment protection, collective action, and comparative analysis.
