The HR environment is getting increasingly regulated. Plethora of laws and compliance's have been recently introduced, however not many professionals are aware about the same, its risks and implications. Non-compliance of the same can result not only in major risks for organizations but also devastating consequences for the individual who are unknowingly responsible for the same.
Hence, in order to make it big in the domain one must have a solid knowledge on labour and employment law accompanied by top notch managerial skills to deal with legal and policy issues arising due to employee discipline but, these skills only depict the tip of the iceberg. In true sense the following skills are essential to thrive in the domain:-
Identification of Employee Related Issues and Risk Management Techniques such as cross reference techniques to manage them
Managing Legal and Practical aspects of Contract and Outsourced Employment
Practical techniques to deal with day to day work place issues e.g. sexual harassment, employee relations, negotiations, collective bargaining etc
Effectively and sensitively handling downsizing / retrenchment, lay-off / bench employees and termination
Practical understanding of Compensation and Benefits – through the Wages and Bonus Act, Retirees and Social Security Act from Compliance as well as salary structuring and negotiation for candidate closure
Team members in HR, Compliance, Admin, Legal and Executives managing Labour and Employee related matters would benefit from these kind of programs.

I agree with what you have written,Laws and conditions on every single thing that you are dealing with indirectly or directly must be known by you for not only your safety but also for the others safety who may be victim of it directly or indirectly.Hence labour and employment laws are also on the list.
