This course provides an overview of the various methods and concepts, which make up and affect labor relations in Egypt. Through case studies, collective bargaining simulations and by examining collective agreements, the student will gain an understanding of the collective bargaining process as well as its application to the workplace and factors that affect employee-employer relations, such as mediation, and conflict management. The course also enables students to evaluate HR policies against principles of employment law. Students learn about Egyptian Labor laws and policies designed to protect equal employment opportunities (e.g., civil rights, disabilities, and family leave) and to compensate employees for occupational injuries and illnesses. Students also learn legal principles affecting employee rights to privacy, restricting employment-at-will policies, and restraining an organization’s right to screen employees for drugs and alcohol.
