Product description

Your First Stop for Executive Employment Law and Governance
Today's executive may wear many hats: director, officer, shareholder, and employee. Multiple hats translate into multiple areas of law and liability. Numerous statutes limit the behaviour of executives and directors, including those dealing with:

  • Corporations
  • Employment
  • Securities
  • Tax
  • Retirement income
  • Immigration
  • Crime

For more than 25 years, executives, directors, and lawyers have turned to Executive Employment Law to cut through this jungle of laws. The publication provides an insightful, integrated analysis of the rights and obligations of executives and the boards of directors who supervise them. This unique looseleaf service covers both the common law applicable in most provinces, and the civil law of Quebec.
