"This multi-part text offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the many aspects of employment and labour law in Canada, and the policies and forces that shape it. Written to fill the need for a law text that is accessible to law and non-law students alike, it features numerous but concise chapters, clear explanations of concepts and definitions, and useful pedagogy throughout. It is intended primarily for undergraduate and graduate university and college students, particularly those in courses on employment law, human resources management, labour law, labour studies, industrial relations, and other business and labour courses. The book/ebook is also linked to Professor Doorey's own widely read and award-winning blog (LawofWork.ca). Students will be able to refer to the website to find regularly updated content, links, and news related to the contents of each chapter, as well as the author's regular insightful blog posts, commentary, and additional discussion questions relating to current developments in this field."--Publisher's website.
