DESCRIPTION

Main Volume Information

As the United States continues to be Canada’s major trading partner and most significant foreign investor, Canadian Labour and Employment Law for the U.S. Practitioner continues to be the essential resource for U.S. attorneys counseling American businesses seeking to do business north of the border. Now updated with a Fourth Edition, this treatise offers a concise explanation of Canada’s workplace laws from a U.S. perspective and highlights the key distinctions between Canadian and U.S. labor and employment law.

Highlights of the Fourth Edition include:

  • Identification of the termination provisions under which employers may fire employees without just cause, as long as they provide notice or make minimum payments in lieu of giving proper notice
  • Analysis of a pair of key Supreme Court of Canada decisions (Mounted Police Association of Ontario v Canada (Attorney General)and Saskatchewan Federation of Labour v Saskatchewan) that interpret the Canadian guarantee of freedom of association to generously protect against substantial interference with the right to a meaningful process of collective bargaining
  • Discussion of recent rulings examining the procedural fairness of workplace investigations, which have taken central stage in recent years

With its helpful summaries of Canadian Supreme Court decisions relating to the panoply of labor and employment law, including its timely review of hot-button issues such as data management, surveillance, workplace harassment, and bullying, Canadian Labour and Employment Law for the U.S. Practitioner is a one-of-a-kind, indispensable reference.

REVIEWS

"This book is, quite frankly, the best single volume on Canadian employment law to appear for a long time. It tells employers and employees where they stand, legally speaking, across the whole range of issues that make up modern labour law. Not to put too fine a point on it, if there were but one Canadian labour law text that should be on the shelf of every Canadian practitioner, I think that this would be the one."
