"This is the Canadian employment and labour law text for our time."
—Harry Arthurs, York University, Emeritus.

The Law of Work: Complete Edition is the first text to offer a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of all aspects of work law in Canada for a non-law audience. It offers thorough coverage in short, focused chapters, making it an ideal text for any overview course.

This volume explores all three work law regimes—common law, regulation, and collective bargaining—in a user-friendly manner. Complex legal issues and policy debates are presented using accessible language, and highlight boxes clearly distinguish and examine key court decisions.

  • Combines two previous The Law of Work volumes (Common Law and the Regulation of Work, and Industrial Relations and Collective Bargaining) into a single comprehensive edition.
  • Meets HRPA standards for academic rigour and overall content coverage.
  • Explains terms and concepts clearly for readers with no previous law background.
  • Links various parts of the book through a framework that demonstrates how work law influences and is influenced by broader social, economic, political, and legal forces.
  • Ties content closely to David Doorey's award-winning blog, LawofWork.ca, which provides links updating the book's coverage, and further commentary on key issues and news stories.
  • Includes chapter pedagogy such as boxes, definitions, summaries, discussion questions, updates, and external links.
  • Features important case decisions, prominent theories and thinkers, key concepts, and debates in highlight boxes.
  • Emphasizes key concepts, law, and issues—without excessive detail—through concise chapter design.
  • Provides clearly defined terms and a full glossary.
