CIPD to offer advice on new workplace legislation

23-08-2006

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) is to launch a series of nationwide workshops aimed at helping employers to implement new workplace legislation.

A survey from the institute reveals that around three-fifths of organisations feel that implementing employment legislation makes a positive contribution to employee relationships.

The series of Law on Tour workshops is designed to help employers to prepare for new employment laws and successfully implement them in a way that benefits their business.

Recent and forthcoming changes to the law will be tackled in the workshops, including the Work and Family Act 2006 covering family rights and annual leave, as well as the new Age Discrimination regulations.

"Our research shows that the majority of employers see the implementation of employment legislation as making a positive contribution to employee relationships as well as increasing employees' sense of trust in their employer," said Ben Willmott, CIPD employee relations adviser.

"Providing adequate training for managers in employment law issues will not only help to avoid costly legal action, it is also key if organisations are to become employers of choice and recruit, retain and motivate an increasingly diverse workforce."
