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.
This book focuses on substantive Canadian criminal law -- that which concerns offences, defences, and incapacity. Judges and courts, as they construe criminal offences, are engaged first and foremost in an exercise of statutory interpretation with a presumption of restraint. Courts and judges have approached offence elements relating to voluntariness and fault, defences, and claims of incapacity with the tacit understanding that Parliament's central aim in crafting criminal offences is not simply to set out the conditions under which legal officials are authorized to administer punishment, but to guide ordinary citizens as they decide how to act on a day-to-day basis.
