How to Avoid Day-to-Day Legal Problems
New employment law cases are released every day. The government also remains active with new legislation and the law continues to change at a rapid pace. The new edition of this handbook provides up-to-date, current information, enabling employers, practitioners, human resource specialists and employees to stay on top of the latest developments in the law.

  • Human rights
  • Health and safety issues
  • Negotiating with unions

Commentary and analysis cover a range of employment issues in Ontario, from termination procedures to employee benefits to parental leave, including common law and statutory requirements affecting both employers and employees. Whether you operate in a union, non-union, or mixed environment, you'll learn important ways to improve the employment relationship.
