The uncertain economics of our times and growing complexity of the employment relationship place a particular premium on a general knowledge of employment law for most Canadian lawyers. Whether the issue is reasonable grounds for dismissal, confidentiality requirements, workplace harassment or the entitlement to bereavement leave, few areas of practice are unconnected to some aspect of employment law.

Newly and thoroughly updated, Halsbury's Employment (2015 Reissue) provides that necessary understanding, knowledgeably covering topics such as:

Employment standards and other protective legislation

Human rights legislation Making the contract of employment Statutory obligations of the employer Obligations and duties of the employee Termination of the employment relationship
