Employment Law

This Employment Law course is aimed at workplace representatives and its purpose is to equip the Representative with an understanding of the role of employment law within their place of work. We explore the main pieces of employment legislation and enable the learner to source relevant legal guidelines/requirements in a given workplace situation.

Entry requirements: You must be a SIPTU member and nominated to attend the course by your SIPTU Organiser. Normally you will have completed some Introductory or Basic training but we will recognise long service as a union activist instead.

Certification: This course can lead to a recognised qualification – a Level 5 QQI minor award – 5N3785. It is also possible to combine this award with others towards a major award.

Support: All SIPTU College courses are taught by experienced tutors who combine their own trade union experience with appropriate academic qualifications. As a participant on a SIPTU College course you will have access to SIPTULearn.ie, an online portal through which you can access course notes, multimedia content, quizzes and links to relevant course material in order to reinforce classroom learning.
