The fundamental principle of labour legislations is to guarantee fairness in the employment relationshiips and protect basic rights of parties involved. As the workplace becomes more complex and globally competitive, the line between rights and privileges is rapily disappearing. This has resulted to increasing incident of industrial action and work stoppages. In-depth working knowledge of labour employment and social laws and their application is germane to industrial peace, harmony, social-economic well-being and peaceful co-existence in and outside of work.

The ignorance or lack of adequate working knowledge of the Labour, Employment and Social Laws has financially compromised many organisations, leading to colossal loss of revenue paid as damages and compensation due to breach of the provisions of the Labour Laws. This lack of requisite skills to tackle contemporary issues in human resources management and labour relations can constitute a constraint to achieving competitiveness advantage in today's business world.

This Course is thus, designed to empower managers with knowlege and provisions of the Nigerian Labour, Employment and Social Laws. The Course equally aims to exhaustively examine the legal and contemporary labour relations issues in the workplace.
