The Employment and Industrial Relations Act (EIRA) (Chap 452 of the Laws of Malta) represents Malta’s primary source of employment law, including conditions of employment, protection against discrimination and industrial relations. Hence it will deal with Title 1 – Employment Relations and Title II – Industrial Relations.

We often talk about employment law without actually knowing the legal provisions being referred to and this workshop will do just that. It will give one the opportunity to know what salient provisions, this important piece of law covers and how such provisions are to be applied in practice.

On the 21st December 2018 new Legal Notices were published in the Government Gazette. These deal with Payslips, Vacation Leave, Organisation of Working Time Regulations and National Minimum wage. During the workshop participants will briefed about the implications of these new legal notices.

Speakers Dr Roselyn Borg and Mr Angelito Sciberras

This workshop will deal with the two most common “headaches” HR and employers keep facing.

When it comes to workplace monitoring the question that often arises is what may/may not be monitored. This part of the workshop will deal with managing workplace monitoring and surveillance and it will cover the practical and legal implications of managing and balancing the legitimate needs of an organization to protect its assets and protect the workplace with the realistic and legal expectations of privacy of its employees.

The workshop will also deal with handling subject access requests from employees and this part of the workshop will mainly cover the following:

Conducting an Employment Law Audit

Wednesday 27th March 2019

Time: 9:00hrs till 12:00hrs (Coffee break included)

Speaker Dr Roselyn Borg

Employment law is always developing and it is an area of law wherein one always needs to stay updated.   It is important that the company’s policies and procedures must change with the laws in order to minimize and avoid litigation. One of the ways to achieve this is by conducting an employment law audit which may take time but in the end it will be worth it.

This workshop will deal with, amongst other things the following:

  • Do we need to conduct an audit?
  • When do we do this?
  • Who should conduct it?
  • What is the scope of an audit?
  • What does it involve?

This workshop will give practical examples and will assist participants in understanding all that there is the need to know to conduct an employment law audit.
