Strike Action

The course is designed to outline the legal principles around strike action. The course will primarily be delivered through dialogue between the presenter and participants. Therefore, unlike conventional means of delivering courses, participants will be presented with various practical scenarios and encouraged to give input to identify the legal principle under review. Once the participants have given their views on the issue, the discussion will focus on how our courts have approached and dealt with a similar scenario.

Attorneys, human resource and industrial relations executives, trade union representatives and employers’ organisation officials.
