Employers in Canada are often unaware of the potential liabilities associated with their employment relationships, so it is crucial for business professionals and human resources personnel to identify, manage, and mitigate these liabilities.

Employment Law for Business and Human Resources Professionals: Alberta and British Columbia, 4th Edition provides foundational principles and practical explanations of the key legal issues that arise between employers and employees. Through an extensive review of provincial labour regimes and employment-related statutes, this textbook examines the importance of employment contracts, outlines how to minimize legal risks and liabilities, and indicates when to seek expert legal advice.

This edition explores recent developments in employment law in British Columbia and Alberta using updated insights and case law, as well as examples and exercises that contribute to experiential learning.

  • Up-to-date review and explanation of recent employment legislation in British Columbia and Alberta
  • Relevant summaries of employment law cases, illustrating the application of the legal principles that govern working relationships
  • Two chapters dedicated to the unionized workplace
  • An extensive glossary of basic legal terms and terms specific to employment law
