The 2019 Annotated Canada Labour Code (Print + Proview)
Availability: In Stock

Gain expert insight, extensive case annotations and commentary in the 2019 Annotated Canada Labour Code

For more than 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 2019 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.

“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
