Labour Law - Employment

Labour laws and employment laws in Canada are in place to protect both employees and employers. A wide range of matters and situations are covered under these laws. Labour laws govern the relationship between unionized employees and trade unions and their employers and regulate certain processes, including arbitration and negotiation, the ability to go on strike, and collective bargaining. Employment law, on the other hand, governs the relationship between individual employees and their employer and covers things such as wrongful dismissal, health and safety in the workplace, human rights, pensions, and workers’ compensation, among others. Are you looking for advice on the pros and cons of joining a particular workers union, and want to know what your rights and obligations may be upon doing so? Have you recently been laid-off or let go from a position, and you want to reach out to an employment lawyer to ensure you have been treated fairly? Or are you a small business owner, and you would like to have clarification on your rights as an employer before hiring or dismissing an employee? We have multiple resources available to help you better understand labour and employment laws, and answer the questions that you may have.

Commonwealth Caribbean Employment and Labour Law

This new edition to the series will provide an up-to-date textbook covering a wide-range of employment and labour law issues which affect the Commonwealth Caribbean. Initially the book will embark on a comparative analysis of employment and labour law in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados, as a reference point for distinguishing the laws of other Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions. The book will continue to examine how the law operates within the legal systems of the Caribbean, taking into account the umbilical link to British jurisprudence and the persuasive precedent of other Commonwealth jurisdictions, and the impact this has had on the growth and development of the area. Commonwealth Caribbean Employment and Labour Law will be essential reading for students enrolled on Employment Law, Discrimination and Dismissal Law courses in the Caribbean.

Labour Law in Motion

Diversification of the Labour Force & Terms and Conditions of Employment

While legislation protecting employees exists in most advanced countries, the notion of who actually is an employee has become unstable. Moreover, the decentralization of traditional collective bargaining is clearly under way everywhere, and the all-important balance between workers' security and employers' flexibility continues to change radically, either retreating toward individual statutory rights or seeking new forms of employee representation. Labour Law in Motion reprints sixteen reports originally submitted to the seventh Comparative Labor Law Seminar (Tokyo Seminar) sponsored by the Japan Institute for Labour Policy and Training in March 2004. Eleven expert authors describe the situation in their respective countries with regard to issues such as the following:criteria used to determine whether a person is an employee;what categories of non-employee exist, and what measure of statutory protection is afforded to such persons;variations in the concept of employee among labour law, tax law, and social security law;regulation of terms and conditions of employment; the forms and legal nature of employee representation;current trends in deregulation or `re-regulation' of labour laws;mechanisms permitting deviation from legal norms; and,the manner and extent of labour law intervention in the labour market. All eleven authors emphasize recent and ongoing changes in their countries' labour laws and evaluate the factors that have contributed to such changes. Each author concludes that reform of traditional labour laws is indeed necessary. However, the book as a whole clearly demonstrates that the content of such reform differs from country to country, particularly in the extent to which labour law entrusts the regulation of working conditions to the market. Offering as it does a clear and concise summary of the recent and current experience of labour relations in eight major industrialized countries, Labour Law in Motion is an essential resource for professionals and officials engaged in any aspect of labour law or regulation in any country.

Employment and Labor Law

Readers who are majoring in business or another non-legal professions will find EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW, 9E offers the ideal comprehensive introduction to employment and labor relations. This book uses excerpts from real law cases to illustrate how labor-related disputes arise and are resolved in the courts. Eye-opening features, such as The Working Law and Ethical Dilemmas, demonstrate how labor legislation and ethical decision-making impact employees at all levels -- from hourly workers to owners. Readers review the most up-to-date information on the NLRB and EEOC, the Fair Labor Standards Act, President Obama’s executive orders regarding undocumented immigrants and LGBT rights, Obamacare, the Defense of Marriage Act, and other employee-benefits developments. This edition also addresses relevant issues, such as FLSA and NLRB rights for unpaid interns, teaching assistants, and student-athletes.

Employment and Labor Law

Cihon and Castagnera's EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to employment and labor relations law for the non-legal professional in human resource management and labor relations. The authors emphasize employment, labor relations, and social issues and legislation in the work environment as they cover federal and state laws governing employer/union and employee/employer relations. Case excerpts, including occasional dissents and/or concurring opinions, allow the reader to experience the fact that law develops from the resolution of differing views. This exposure to differing opinions and positions--as well as the immersion in the legal reasoning process--will prove valuable to those students who may become involved in quasi-legal aspects of employee relations. In no other area of the law are non-lawyer professionals exposed to such legal regulation as are human resources directors and industrial relations specialists. EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW will develop the skills of legal reasoning and analysis that are vital for successful performance in such situations.

Labour Law: Principles and Practice in Cameroon

Principles & Practice in Cameroon

There is a dearth of well researched books on important disciplines in law written by Cameroonians. This regrettable situation has invariably meant a reliance of substantive and practice books written mostly by Nigerian and English writers. While books written by these writers have been helpful, they have not always captured the peculiarities and judicial attitudes of the Cameroonian context. When approached from the perspective of practice in the Anglophone regions, not even Cameroonian writers of French orientation have done justice to this situation. This book contributes to filling this gap. It is a comprehensive review that combines an analysis of the principles and basic procedure of labour law in Cameroon. Yanou draws on solid academic research as well as a wide ranging experience in legal practice across Cameroon and Nigeria to present a coherent and practical elaboration of themes such as employment, dismissal, remedies for wrongful dismissal, compensation for industrial injuries, and trade unions. The book is also motivated by the desire for a repository for members of the Bar and Bench, judges, academics, students and human resources practitioners.

Beyond Employment

Changes in Work and the Future of Labour Law in Europe

This book is the English edition of what has become widely known as 'The Supiot Report' - a bold and far-reaching look at the changing nature of work initiated by the EC. It takes as its starting point the profound changes that have taken place in the underlying employment relationship and associated human resource practices over the past twenty years. These developments are placed in their economic, social, institutional, and legal contexts. Competitive pressures on firms, the search for greater efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of public services, the changing role of women in society, and the desire for greater choice on the part of individuals are all important motives for change. The legal framework and the structures and organizations which represent the interests of workers and employers must respond to these changes. Drawing on illustrations from a number of European countries, the book suggests that the legal framework should encourage greater collaboration in the workplace, particularly over issues such as training. But it should also place work within its social context and facilitate genuine choices by individuals.
