The uncertain economics of our times and growing complexity of the employment relationship place a particular premium on a general knowledge of employment law for most Canadian lawyers. Whether the issue is reasonable grounds for dismissal, confidentiality requirements, workplace harassment or the entitlement to bereavement leave, few areas of practice are unconnected to some aspect of employment law.

Halsbury's Employment (2019 Reissue) provides that necessary understanding, knowledgeably covering topics such as:

  • Remedies for unlawful discrimination

  • Collateral contracts and defective contracts
  • Frustration of the employment contract

  • Apprenticeship and trade qualification legislation
  • Pre-employment investigations of the employee
  • Legislation governing employment agencies
  • Misleading statements

Obligations and duties of the employee

  • Common law duties and statutory obligations
  • Trade secrets and confidential information
  • Fiduciary duties
