|Course Name||The Charter and Human Rights in Labour Law|
|Course Code||LAW 6791|
The workplace has been a significant source of legal developments in respect of both statutory human rights legislation and the constitutionally entrenched Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. This course will examine, in the employment context, the nature of prohibited discrimination and statutory defences and remedies under human rights statutes, as well as the processes for dealing with such issues. In particular, the respective roles of the human rights administrative process and collective agreement arbitration will be assessed. In respect of the Charter, the role of administrative tribunals as well as courts in dealing with Charter claims will be considered. The substantive focus will be the impact of s. 15 (equality), s. 2(d) freedom of association, and s. 2(b) (freedom of expression) on labour law.
