Laws of the Unionized Workplace

Understanding, interpreting, and applying the Canadian legal framework to union-management issues is important to the role of the labour relations practitioner. Students explore the legal rights and obligations of unions and management and compare the contributions of provincial and federal jurisdictions in shaping labour relations legislation. Through online presentations, debates, and case study analyses, students investigate the impact of laws in labour relations, employment standards, workers' compensation, human rights, and occupational health and safety in local jurisdictions.
