The 4th edition of Employment Law for Business and Human Resources Professionals by Kathryn Filsinger, a professor in the Business School, has just been published. Written with both students and HR professionals in mind, this book focuses on providing a fundamental and practical understanding of the key legal issues – both common law and statutory - that arise between employers and non-unionized employees. These include basic employment standards (including the Bill 148 amendments and its responses to precarious work), human rights, privacy, workplace harassment, pay equity, health and safety, and wrongful dismissal. Each area is explored with the help of numerous case studies and examples that provide real-world context. This book is widely used in post-secondary institutions throughout Ontario, as well as in other provinces.
