A beginners guide to employment law

Delivered by Rachel Lewis, an employment solicitor and Deputy Director at Legal Advice Clinic, University of South Wales, this session is for those with little, or no, prior knowledge of employment law and procedure, who have an interest in volunteering with employment law pro bono schemes.

The video covers:

  • employment status
  • sources of employment law
  • main claims brought in the Employment Tribunal, including unfair dismissal and discrimination
  • tribunal procedure
  • remedies available to successful claimants
  • current issues in employment law, including Covid-19
