Employment Law for Paralegals is an adaptation of Emond’s best-selling title Employment Law for Business and Human Resources Professionals written specifically for paralegals. Discussion of the law is tied to the paralegal scope of practice and the Law Society of Ontario’s education competencies.

The text covers substantive labour law, employment law, human rights, and the important changes to the Employment Standards Act that came into effect in 2018. It also addresses procedural concerns including those surrounding enforcement and the prosecuting of provincial regulatory offences in Provincial Offences Court.

This tailored approach, supplemented with process charts and sample claims, will engage paralegal students and prepare them to provide services to those who cannot effectively advocate for themselves in what are often lengthy and complicated legal processes.

  • Updates to the chapter on the Employment Standards Act
  • A new chapter on labour relations
  • Process charts related to human rights, and workplace safety and insurance
  • Sample claims and forms relating to wrongful dismissal, employment standards, human rights, the labour relations board, and more
  • Key terms defined in the margins and end-of-text glossary
