employers and employees. In Canada, employment laws related to unionized workplaces are differentiated from those relating to particular individuals. In most countries however, no such distinction is made. However, there are two broad categories of labour law. First, collective labour law relates to the tripartite relationship between employee, employer and union. Second, individual labour law concerns employees' rights at work and through the contract for work. The labour movement has been instrumental in the enacting of laws protecting labour rights in the 19th and 20th centuries. Labour rights have been integral to the ...

Although traditionally the employee’s physical well-being was the sole criterion by which a “harassment free” environment was analyzed, at the current stage of the law employers are increasingly expected to provide for the employees’ psychological well-being as well. This is especially the case in light of the recent amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA). In the following paragraphs I provide a brief overview of the law on the subject. I suggest that employers should be more mindful of this ongoing evolution. The reason being: what once was not considered “violence,” “harassment,” or “bullying,” today might ... market research, surveys and trends
Similar Fact Evidence in Workplace Disputes
You likely read about charges against the former Attorney General of Ontario, Michael Bryant being dropped this week.  Bryant killed a cyclist who grabbed onto his car and was killed when he hit a pole after flying from the moving car.  What does this have to do with employment and labour law, you ask? Well, this.  If you read the prosecutor’s explanation of why the charges were dropped, much turned on the fact that the cyclist had had several earlier similar run ins with other drivers.   In fact, there were six such incidents referred to. Just think about that for a second. Does the fact that the cyclist has a history of ... market research, surveys and trends

Updated in February 2007 by Mr Leviter Lee, Cornell University, School of Industrial and Labour relations, USA, and Ms Angelika Muller, ILO. The United States is one of the few countries in the world that still embraces the employment at-will concept. Although, as elsewhere, a pure practice of this doctrine has been eroded somewhat by jurisprudence, it is still predominant, particularly when one compares it to employment security law in other Western and developed countries. Consequently, with the exceptions of the States of Arizona and Montana, [1] the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

How to fix unemployment
TWO years into the Great Recession unemployment in America remains well above 9%. This has resulted in economic and emotional pain among the long-term jobless and endless commentary on what we can do about it. Paul Krugman reckons that if we just had a bigger stimulus we could’ve restored full employment. Maybe, but I wonder what he means by full employment. In economic terms it means eradicating cyclical unemployment. Cyclical unemployment is a short-term problem; it occurs in a recession when there’s deficient demand. Monetary or fiscal stimulus just needs to give the economy a good kick in the pants to prop up demand and get ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Concerning non-compete clauses in Canada, specifically in Quebec ...
Although they are definitely legal in Quebec, non-compete clauses are viewed restrictively by courts in an effort to strike a balance between a company's right to protect its business interests and an employee's ability to earn a living post-termination. Particular attention will be paid to the nature of the work carried out by the employee, the duration of the non-compete period and the geographic area that is the subject of the restriction. posted November 28, 2007 Software developer at Topaz Technologies see all my answers Off the top of my head, they might be hard to enforce since you cannot stop somebody from ...
