The employment and industrial relations environment continues to evolve and change at a fast pace. A number of Kenyan Labour Laws which were enacted from 2007, have been amended recently thus affecting HR practices as a result. Labour laws are constantly being reviewed and amended in Kenya, an example is the recently stipulated Data Protection Act, employers will have to transform how they manage their organizations data.  The Courts too, are making landmark rulings which set precedents. Bearing this in mind the Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) held a two-day physical workshop at the Waterbuck Hotel in Nakuru dubbed 'Navigating Emerging Issues in Labour Laws & Labour Relations in Kenya' to ensure employers are updated on these changes. 

The approach to this workshop was very practical and interactive. Discussions on emerging employment issues were held and put into practice through the use of case studies, role plays, simulations and unpacking of court precedents. FKE provided a membership clinic where seasoned legal and industrial relations staff members interacted with members on a one-on-one basis and resolved challenges  they were facing in their organizations.   FKE also provide ready take-aways toolkits for immediate application at the participants workplaces.

Leading the FKE team and opening the workshop was Ms Jacqueline Mugo, Executive Director & CEO, FKE.

The training came to an end having 81 delegates, including Chief Executive Officers and Human Recourse Managers from across the country, fully equipped and  updated on the changing labour laws and the implications on their internal policies. FKE appreciates the great turnout during the physical workshop. The delegates are now empowered with practical skills to apply at their workplaces.
