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.

McCallum's Top Workplace Relations Cases

Labour Law and the Employment Relationship as Defined by Case Law

Employment and Labor Law

A comprehensive introduction to employment and labor relations law, EMPLOYMENT AND LABOR LAW is ideal for non-legal students and professionals. Excerpts from real case law throughout the book illustrate how labor-related disputes arise and get resolved in the courts. And, eye-opening chapter features like The Working Law and Ethical Dilemma demonstrate how labor legislation and ethical decision-making can impact companies today. Complete with the most up-to-date information on the ADA Amendments Act, ERISA Amendments under the Obama Administration’s 2009 economic stimulus plan, the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, and much more, no other book combines such balanced coverage with an accessible, reader-friendly approach.

Key Aspects of German Employment and Labour Law

This book provides practical, business-orientated and accessible guidance on key aspects of German employment and labour law as well as adjoining fields. This second, completely revised edition presents the latest changes in German labour and employment law and jurisprudence. It covers, amongst other newer developments, the statutory minimum wage, changes in agency work, extensive changes in European and German employee data protection law, and includes a completely new chapter on compliance issues in the employment context. Specialised lawyers with many years of experience explain the legal basis of these aspects of German law, highlight typical practical problems and suggest solutions to those problems. In addition, examples are given on how to best manage legal pitfalls to minimise risks. This book translates employment and labour law for foreign in-house counsels and human resources managers at international companies and provides a clear understanding of the complex legal regulations in Germany.

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.

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.

Regulating Employment Industrial Relations and Labour Law Intl Co

The complexity of employment arrangements in various countries tends to make it difficult to understand them. Nevertheless, it is important to 'take stock' periodically, particularly from an internationally comparative perspective. This remarkable book is a giant step in that direction. It is especially valuable in the context of increasing globalisation. For each of nine key jurisdictions - the European Union, Germany, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Japan - experts present detailed information and analysis on key issues, shedding valuable light on trends in such specific areas of employment relations as the following: * atypical work and flexible work arrangements; * dispute settlement procedures such as negotiation, conciliation, mediation, arbitration and other forms of governmental or judicial intervention; * job security, anti-discrimination and gender equality; * recognition of unions and employers' associations and forms of employee representation; * how collective bargaining is regulated, whom the collective agreements cover and what they contain; * parental leave and childcare policy; * the capacity of individual agreements to override or not override collective agreements; * minimum wage levels; * overtime and shift work; and * paid leave entitlements. As a general framework, Part 1 offers an insightful summary of the underpinnings of current analysis of globalization, including discussion of the varieties of capitalism thesis, the divergence/convergence debate (with its models of bipolarization, clustering and hybridization), and elements of historical and political-economic path dependency in various cultures. The information gathered here furthers understanding of the increasing 'disconnect' between the prevailing institutional framework for employment relations and the sweeping changes that are taking place in the world of work. With this book's analysis, practitioners and policymakers will be able to overcome their dated assumptions and more effectively accommodate each others' interests in the face of the complex mix of continuity and change that they are confronting. The team of authors are experts in these countries. They are active in policy or legal analysis, business and/or scholarship.

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.
