CPHR CPD: 1.5
Collective agreements can seem like daunting, legal documents. This workshop discusses the fundamentals of collective agreements: what rights, restrictions and responsibilities managers and employees have under collective agreements, where flexibility is allowed, and the impact of past practice. It discusses different ways of solving issues, and what to avoid. This course discusses collective agreements and roles, rights, restrictions, and responsibilities in general. It does not discuss any specific collective agreements. The facilitator cannot provide interpretation of clauses within your collective agreement for you.
Who Should Attend:
Any HR Professional with a desire to improve their understanding of roles, rights, restrictions, and responsibilities under collective agreements and how they can resolve labour issues within their parameters.
- Collective Agreement Fundamentals
- Rights, Restrictions, Responsibilities, and Roles
- Flexibility and Past Practice
