What are the major types of legislation that affect employees in a non-unionized workplace in your jurisdiction?
- What are the major types of legislation that affect employees in a non-unionized workplace in your jurisdiction? For each piece of legislation, summarize the major rights and obligations it provides relevant to recruitment and selection. This means I want you to demonstrate you know:
- the Federal and Provincial law
- The Charter
- Provincial labour Law
- Employment Equity Act
- Why is such legislation necessary?
- Your answer should include some discussion about conflicting interests in employee/employer relationships.
- You must use a case that you will use as proof to your argument. This case must be within the last 10 years. The case needs to be about the 13 prohibited grounds.
Before You Begin
- Remember this is an essay NOT a report. This means you need a thesis that is supported by your research.
- Define your jurisdiction: it is the geographic area over which authority extends (i.e. provincial vs. federal).
- Your answer should be approximately 10 pages in length. I will not penalize you if you are too long (within reason), however; the page length is meant to keep you concise.
- To reduce the length of your response, you may use point form/tables to list specific information that relates to sections of legislation. Otherwise, use complete sentences and paragraphs.
- Use headings to make clear which parts of this assignment you are answering in each section of your essay. Ensure that your response directly addresses all components of the questions that are asked.
- Common-sense responses or opinions alone are not sufficient. Your answer must demonstrate knowledge of the course materials and be based upon or reference an authority.
- Clearly reference any information that you quote directly or paraphrase, including material you find in the textbook. You must use APA style template, writing, and referencing.
- You will find websites & journals very helpful in this exercise. Some suggestions include: Canadian Employment Law Today, Canadian Human Rights Commission www.chrc-ccdp.ca, and The Alberta Human Rights Commission http://www.canlii.org/en/ab/abhrc/, and The Ontario Human Rights Commission http://www.ohrc.on.ca/en.
- All quotations and sources of ideas should be identified by way of in-text citations and a reference list. You must also acknowledge information you paraphrase (i.e., information you glean from a source and put into your own words), including material from the textbook.
