Gain expert insight, extensive case annotations and commentary in the 2017 Annotated Canada Labour Code.
For 25 years, Ronald Snyder's Annotated Canada Labour Code has been the "bible" among federal labour practitioners. Ron's annotations provide essential insights into the Code, and make this book the necessary resource for preparing any case before the Canada Industrial Relations Board. This 2017 Edition of the Annotated Canada Labour Code digests the new decisions that have been rendered by the CIRB, OSH Appeal Board, adjudicators, referees and the courts since the publication of last year's Edition.
- New commentary on the CIRB's interpretation and application of the Employees' Voting Rights Act.
- Case law and commentary on the Board's review of how union membership fees are paid in determining the strength of certification applications, commentary on the duty of fair representation owed by employer representatives to their member companies, the rights of litigants to be represented by legal counsel at arbitration proceedings and further explanation of how the 'maintenance of activities provisions' of the Code will be applied.
- Part II Cases includes insight into when 'violence in the workplace' complaints must be investigated and the role of employee representatives in 'refusal to work' complaints.
- Part III Digests canvasses the noted 2016 Supreme Court of Canada judgment in Wilson v. Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd., 2016 SCC 29, 2016 CSC 29, which dealt with what constitutes an 'unjust dismissal', as well as other cases dealing with issues of whether paternity leave can be sought, what constitutes the date of dismissal for section 240 purposes as well as consideration of the 'arguably relevant' test for the production of documents.
“Ron Snyder’s Annotated Canada Labour Code is a comprehensive and indispensable compendium of Board jurisprudence, both pre and post legislative amendments of 1999. The Annotated Code also includes a review of relevant cases and comments pertaining to Part II of the Code (Occupational Safety and Health) as well the Regulations enacted under each part of the Code. It has become an essential reference tool for all labour relations practitioners who work in the federally-regulated sectors and who wish to obtain insights into the application and interpretation of the Canada Labour Code and the rights and obligations that it confers on the various parties in the workplace. Mr. Snyder is to be commended for contributing such an important work to the library of reference materials on labour law and for his commitment to keeping the tool updated and relevant for practitioners.”
Ginette Brazeau, Chairperson of the Canada Industrial Relations Board
