Overview

For a clear understanding of the legal protections and remedies availa ble to employers and workers in Canada, this convenient survey and ana lysis is ideal. Although it may be said that there are eleven distinct systems of labour law in Canada - encompassing ten provinces and the Federal government - the authors of Labour Law in Canada ensure depth of treatment by focusing on common policy themes and typical legal sol utions, with significant departures noted in whatever province or area of law they may arise. However, the relevant law of the three most po pulous and influential provinces - Quebec, Ontario, and British Columb ia - is covered in particular detail, as is Federal labour legislation and case law. As an accurate and usable guide for lawyers not expert in Canadian law, Labour Law in Canada is without peer. It will be of particular value to business investors and their counsel.
