ARLINGTON, Va., Jan. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, announced today the publication of the 2010 Cumulative Supplement to Canadian Labour and Employment Law for the U.S. Practitioner, Second Edition.
Canadian Labour and Employment Law for the U.S. Practitioner, Second Edition provides U.S. attorneys with a unique source of information to assist them in evaluating workplace issues in Canada. Practitioners get a concise explanation of Canada's workplace laws from a U.S. perspective and highlights of the key distinctions between Canadian and U.S. labour and employment law.
The 2010 Cumulative Supplement provides an update on Canada's progress in dealing with the recession; an explanation of the decision of the Supreme Court of Canada finding that the closure of one of WalMart's stores in Quebec following unionization did not violate Quebec labor law; a review of Canada's recent laws requiring employers to provide their employees protection from violence in the workplace; a summary of the status of employment law class actions in Canada; and a review of changes in pension law.
Comprehensive and comparative in its approach, this treatise provides up-to-date analyses of critical developments in the law of collective bargaining, the individual employment relationship, discrimination, and other vitally important issues in the Canadian workplace.
The book is co-authored by Douglas G. Gilbert, Brian W. Burkett, and Moira K. McCaskill. Mr. Gilbert, a partner at Heenan Blaikie in Toronto, practices labor and employment law on behalf of management before labor relations, arbitration, human rights and workers' compensation tribunals, and Canadian courts.
