Labour Law - Legal

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. You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
