Unit 08: Employment law
Lawyers frequently represent and market their firms and expertise in venues outside the office or courtroom, such as law conventions, university lecture halls and hearings before governmental authorities. When requested to present or report on developments in law, it is useful to be able to obtain a quick overview of the subject and its related issues.[br]
This exercise uses meta-search engines to research legal concepts in English.
Your firm has been requested to provide a lecture at an international conference in Budapest entitled “The International Labour Context: Recent Progress in Labour Law Legislation”.
Two of the senior partners are interested in attending the conference in order to profile the firm and make important business connections. They are especially keen to impress potential clients with their expertise.
Not feeling comfortable with their own level of legal English, they have requested that you do some preliminary research for their presentation. They have requested details on English language resources which they can rely on as a source of terminology and legal concepts in preparing their respective speeches. They have also requested that you provide a brief outline of a possible presentation.
- Locate and outline the topics to be covered in a presentation in English on the subject of Employment law. The presentation should include a comparison of recent developments in UK and US jurisdictions with reference to some or all of the following:
• written statements of terms/employment contracts;
• sex and race discrimination;
• minimum notice periods;
• wrongful and/or unfair dismissal;
• employment tribunals;
• future developments.
- If possible, the partners would like to include either an audio and/or a video clip in the presentation. Try to find an appropriate clip illustrating one or more aspects of Employment law.
