The Online Certificate in Employment Relations is designed as an additional credential to support those seeking entry level jobs in labour relations and human resources management. Students will be introduced to the theory, policy and legal frameworks behind the employment relationship, and how these can be applied to assess workplace challenges and problems.
This certificate program consists of 15.0 units from the following courses:
- EMPR 200 (3.0 units): Unions and labour Relations
- EMPR 210 (3.0 units): Employment Law
- EMPR 220 (3.0 units): Conflict Management
- EMPR 230 (3.0 units): Human Resource Management
- EMPR 240 (3.0 units): Workplace Policies and Governance
- EMPR 260 (3.0 units): Advancing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
- EMPR 280 (3.0 units): Finance and Accounting for HR Professionals
Note: If you are also in an online degree program, only 6.0 units from your degree program or the certificate can count towards both. In other words, to graduate with both an online degree and the EMPR certificate, you would need a total of 99.0 units (instead of 90.0 units).
Note: Due to the overlap in content between the courses in the EMPR certificate and the LAW certificate, students are not eligible to receive both certificates.
No more than 6.0 units of core courses may be transfer credits from outside Queen’s University.
