(2) Award in Employment Law Course II

The course is an MQF Level 5 Award accredited by The Malta Further and Higher Education Authority (MFHEA).

Employing people is becoming increasingly challenging and requires specific knowledge about many current and emerging situations. Sourcing foreign human resources; data protection rights; social media within the workplace are amongst the many issues that are being faced by companies in their engagement with their employees, thus adding to the complexity of the employer/employee relationship.

The Malta Employers’ Association is organising this course to address these matters concretely through the involvement of professionals who are specialised in their respective fields. It will consist of focused sessions during which participants will engage with the trainers to relate the contents of the lectures with their own context and experiences. This course is thus aimed at
