[This second edition] presents a comprehensive overview of all aspects of Canadian employment and labour law. Ideal for a non-legal audience, this resource considers the social context in which these laws are made and draws from various disciplines, including economics, management studies, and history. Through short, focused chapters, students will be introduced to the three regimes of work law: common law, regulation, and collective bargaining. Notable legal cases and explanations of key concepts are featured throughout, alongside practical problem-solving exercises and discussion questions that invite readers to apply the law to real-life workplace scenarios. --Publisher's description
