Employment Law for Business and Human Resources Professionals: Alberta and British Columbia, 3rd edition is a comprehensive, practical guide to the legislative and judicial framework of employment law in Alberta and British Columbia. Using recent and relevant examples, the text explores the evolution of employment law, and the factors and technologies that affect the workplace.

This new edition fills the gaps from previous editions by branching out beyond individual employment contracts to cover the entire landscape of the law of work, including unionized workplaces. This approach offers a clear view of how various workplaces fit together within our legal system.

The structure of the text allows different topics to be explored as instructors see fit, making the book easily integrated into courses. Additionally, by combining an in-depth overview of the major areas of employment law with the finer details of legislation, students will be better prepared to make informed decisions regarding legal issues that arise between employees and employers.
