Product Description

Entrepreneurs, business owners, and risk takers need to know the facts of workplace regulation in Ontario and how the laws are interpreted and applied by courts, arbitrators, the Ministry of Labour, the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario, and the Ontario Labour Relations Board. The author is a lawyer with over thirty years’ experience in advising employers on employment and labour law. In this book, he gives employers the practical, straightforward information they need — about matters like discrimination, termination compensation, occupational health and safety, and union organizing campaigns — to implement best employment practices and avoid interference from third parties.

The Employment and Labour Law Toolbox has been organized with your time in mind to enable you to find what you are looking for and gain an understanding of the relevant ideas quickly. For the first time in Ontario, a resource exists to help owners, managers, and entrepreneurs proactively manage their employees and get the job done.
This edition is updated to include discussion of changes to the Ontario Employment Standards Act, 2000 and the Ontario Labour Relations Act, 1995 brought in by the Ford government’s Bill 47 in 2018 and 2019.
