Course Description

This course is designed to acquaint the student with a general understanding of labour and employment law, particularly in Ontario. The role of common law and Ontario statutes affecting workers is examined. Legislation and case law concerning hiring employment contracts, employment standards, human rights, privacy, health and safety and wrongful dismissal is reviewed. The latter part of the course introduces the collective bargaining relationship with particular concentration on the Labour Relations Act. Relevant statutes and selected cases are examined.

Notes

The prerequisite may be waived for registered certificate program students who can demonstrate adequate professional experience or education related to business law that satisfies program requirements. Please contact the Academic Coordinator, Pnina Alon-Shenker, at pnina.alon@ryerson.ca for more information.  

This course is online and asynchronous except for its final exam, which is held in person (beginning Fall 2022). This means that you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can work through independently. Note: There will be deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. Details will be included in your course outline, which will be available on the first day of classes.

On-campus exam requirement: Beginning Fall 2022 your final exam will be written in person at the Toronto Metropolitan University campus. If you live more than 100 km from the TMU campus, you may arrange to write your exam off campus using an approved off-campus invigilation service. Details on how to arrange off-campus invigilation will be provided prior to the first day of class.
