Uncertain and changing economies have put increasing pressures on both employers and unions. If you’re involved with labour relations, it’s more important than ever to have a solid understanding of the law to work from.
Now in its eighth successful year, The Osgoode Certificate in Labour Law provides a comprehensive and practical overview of Ontario labour law.
Designed to meet the needs of labour relations and human resource professionals, union representatives, labour relations consultants, in-house counsel or anyone else involved with labour relations issues, this program provides comprehensive tools, accredited CPD hours, and a Certificate from one of the common-law world’s pre-eminent schools.
Over five intensive one-day modules, an expert faculty representing management, union and government perspectives will explore the key concepts of labour law and how they play out in real-world contexts. This is a unique opportunity to get not only a comprehensive overview but also “drill down” into the key issues and challenges that are likely to come across your desk. There will be an emphasis on the practical, and classes will be taught using a blended-delivery method that includes lectures, panel discussions, case studies and interactive workshops. You’ll also receive materials prepared by the speakers that will provide a valuable ongoing resource. Areas include:
This program has been approved for 35 continuing professional development (CPD) hours under Section A3 of the continuing professional development (CPD) log of the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA).
Fees include attendance, program materials, lunch and break refreshments for each of the 4 days of the program. The price does not include accommodations. Please inquire about financial assistance. Fees paid by individuals are eligible for a tuition tax credit. Dress is business casual.
We will make every effort to present the certificate program as advertised, but it may be necessary to change the dates, location, speakers or content with little or no notice. In the event of program cancellation, York University and Osgoode Hall Law School’s liability is limited to reimbursement of paid fees.
You will receive a certificate upon completion of The Osgoode Certificate in Advanced Human Resources Law For Senior HR Executives. Participants must attend all program modules and pass the in-class assessment to receive a certificate.
