Why should I attend an Employment Act Training workshop?

Mastering and knowing how to apply The Employment Act is both a skill and an art.

Besides having a deep understanding of the statute, a Human Resource (HR) practitioner also needs to have practical experience in the application of the Employment Act in different situations.
