Labour and Employment Law, as the name suggests, is the body of law that governs and regulates the rights, restrictions, and obligations of employees and employers. In Canada, Labour and Employment Law is governed by both federal and provincial statutes, codes, and regulations. The Canada Labour Code is a federal code that controls labour standards in all the industries that fall under federal jurisdiction. In addition to the federal code, each province in Canada has it’s own employment standards which further regulate this area of law.
