In 2016, over 240,000 workplace accidents in Canada resulted in workers receiving compensation for their injuries, and over a thousand workplace fatalities occurred that year, according to statistics compiled by the Association of Workers' Compensation Boards of Canada. The health and safety of workers are protected by legislation at either the federal or provincial/territorial level, depending on the sector in which they work. This title examines the wide range of employment and labour law-based rules and regulations aimed at protecting workers, from handling hazardous substances to preventing harassment in the workplace.

Topics covered include:

  • Duties of workplace stakeholders
  • Internal responsibility system
  • Hazardous substances legislation
  • Joint health and safety committees
  • Right to refuse unsafe work
  • Administration and enforcement
  • Offences and penalties

Jeffery Wilson, B.A., LL.B. & Emma Rhodes, B.A.(Hons.), LL.B.

In the criminal justice system, offences committed by children are generally prosecuted under a separate regime, governed by the Youth Criminal Justice Act. There are significant differences regarding the maximum penalties available in youth court, and the identity of an alleged offender is generally subject to a publication ban. There are also special legal considerations when children are the victims of crime, including with respect to evidence given by child witnesses, and compensation for criminal injuries. This title thoroughly examines all aspects of crimes by children and against children.

Topics covered include:

  • Crimes by children
    • Right to counsel
    • Admissibility of statements
    • Sentencing
    • Privacy rights
  • Crimes against children
    • Offences
    • Accommodation and privacy of child witnesses
    • Compensation for child victims
