BLAW 3905 - Employment Law

Business Law Part-time Studies Course

School of Business + Media

To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.

Course Details

This course will explore the common law legal principles and statutory regimes governing the relationship between individual employees and employers in Canada. While the emphasis will be on the law of employment in the non-union context, comparisons will be made throughout the course between individual and unionized activity and the relationship between unions and employers in Canada. The course will involve a review of relevant statutes, analysis of decisions from the courts, practical exercises, discussion and student presentations. Students should take HRMG 3205 Labour Relations I to learn about employment law as it applies to a unionized workforce.
