PRESS RELEASE — The Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture is responding to demands from Members and the wider business community for opportunities to better understand and “know” the Labour Act, by acquiescing and hosting a third Know Your Labour Code Class.

Even after two fully subscribed classes, firms continue to call on the Chamber to run repeat classes. The expert job of the Facilitator, Attorney at Law; Cheryl Goddard-Dorville, is in no small measure responsible for the piqued interest in the Course. Clearly the word is getting around. Handling the diverse participants with superb aplomb, Mrs. Goddard-Dorville has made the class practical and interactive where sharing and learning has become easy for all.

From HR Managers to Supervisors and fellow Attorneys at Law, the exchange of experiences and interpretations by the trainees have been guided by the experienced and knowledgeable Facilitator. She has shared her knowledge and experience freely while admonishing that the Labour Act, while law, always requires a human touch.

The Saint Lucia Chamber of Commerce is therefore exceedingly pleased to advise that the third class of “Know Your Labour Code” has been scheduled for March 13th 2019, at the Kreole Conference Room of Coco Palm Resorts. The workshop will focus specifically on Part III Division 10 – Termination of Employment of the Act and will explore typical cases that companies experience with regards to valid reasons for dismissal, unfair dismissal, constructive dismissal, natural justice safeguards, unsatisfactory performance, warnings, probation and termination.

The Chamber remains committed to meeting the identified needs of its members and is well on its way on offering its’ Sales Management and Sales Champion Program as requested by members.

For more information on this and other training programs to be offered by the Chamber, please contact the Chamber Secretariat.
