Employment relations in Kenya are regulated by a number of sources: Constitutional Rights, Statutory Rights, as set out in statutes and regulations; rights set by Collective Agreements and extension orders of Collective Agreements; and Individual Labour Contracts.

In 2007 Parliament enacted five new Labour Laws which were assented and published in early 2008. These five Labour Laws include the Employment Act, Labour Institutions Act, Work Injury Benefits Act, Labour Relations Act, and Occupational Safety and Health Act.

These Acts of Law are intended to inform, guide and provide an objective way of handling issues between the employer and employee. It is expected that compliance with the Acts, many routine decisions and transactions will proceed with minimal encumbrance leading to higher productivity.

This Seminar seeks to equip personnel with the knowledge of these current Labour Laws, thus enhancing Efficiency, Industrial Morale, Teamwork and Productivity.
