Employment Law Essentials

Minimize the Risk of Employer Liability and Litigation


Former Course Title: Employment and Human Rights Law for Managers

The roots of employment law stretch back to the time of the Black Death. Today it is addressing the needs of the modern workplace, contemplating such subjects as gender inclusion; the blurring of work and personal time; and corporate whistle blowing. 

This newly updated course describes the current Canadian landscape in employment and human rights law. It looks at the legislation regulating employment standards, acceptable workplace conduct, dismissal, discrimination and other essential elements of the employment relationship. It also explores legal developments in emerging “hot button” areas such as the use of technology and social media in the workplace, as well as privacy protection.
