In the new edition of this best-selling text, author Kathryn J. Filsinger presents a thorough overview of employment law in Canada and shows students how to identify and address potential legal problems in the workplace. Designed for college and university undergraduate courses in business administration, human resources management, employee relations, as well as paralegal and law clerk programs, this text introduces relevant statutory (e.g., human rights, employment standards, the AODA) and common-law issues in employment law, and walks students through the legal aspects of the employment process, from hiring to the end of the employment relationship and beyond.

The third edition covers updates on several important cases, including Honda Canada Inc. v. Keays, R v. Cole, Jones v. Tsige, Bowes v. Goss Power Products, Stevens v. Sifton Properties, and Boucher v. Wal-Mart. The text also includes updates to the Open for Business Act aimed at streamlining Ontario government-to-business services, and a new section on monitoring company email, Internet, and computer usage — a growing issue in employment law today.

To keep students engaged with current and hot-button issues in employment law, Filsinger has added new FYI, Case in Point, and In the News sections throughout the text. The author has also added updated review questions and case-based scenarios at the end of each chapter that serve as a useful study guide for students.
