The truth of the matter is that Covid-19 has affected our style and mode of working and learning. In this period, it is inevitable for employers to find new approaches and solutions to build the capacity of their staff through distance learning.  Companies must explore organizational needs vis a viz the necessary skills set required in response to the pandemic.

While opening the 3rd training module session in the course “Managing Employment Contracts During and Post Covid-19 Pandemic”, Mrs. Mugo the Executive Director, Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) pointed out that the Federation had embraced technology and shifted a big part of its training programs to e-platforms. 

The benefits members derive from these trainings include;

1. Enhanced knowledge and skills in managing employment contracts from end-to-end i.e. from the point of employee recruitment/engagement to the point of exit.

2. Increased efficiency in management of ongoing employment contracts.

3. Reduced complaints and grievances from staff.

4. Reduced cost of ligation arising from poor handling of contractual obligations.

The 3rd Module on the topic “Separation of Parties in Employment Contracts” was presented by Mr. George Masese, Senior Legal Officer at FKE. It reviewed the modes of separation and how employers can deal with this, its effects and cost implications. It also explored ways of dealing with separation arising from expiry of contracts, during maternity leave period, facing disciplinary action and now death of employees during this Covid-19 period. More so, in handling next of kin dues, funeral expenses and offering psychosocial support.

Emphasis was put on effective communication with regard to the situation facing the employers and the valid grounds for effecting the separation of contracts.

Mr. Moses Ombokh, Senior Industrial Relations Officer took delegates through real time scenarios using a case study to allow them to internalize and understand the concepts presented.

We are glad that you all joined us for this Master class program. A rerun of the course will be announced soon. All delegates who went through all the three modules will receive an E-certificate. 

A full list of FKE Virtual Masterclass sessions will soon be provided on our website www.fke-kenya.org. You can also write to Eric Munyobi, Manager FKE Consulting Department on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
