||Canadian employment law comes from several sources:
- Statutes, law that your elected representatives make
- Cases, law that judges make
- Contracts, law that you make with your employer or that unions make with employers
Statutes include legislation on employment standards, human rights, pensions, and unique industry statutes. Click Here for list of the most commonly referenced statutes.
Cases involve, most commonly, situations when an employee believes that an employer has not given them enough warning that their job will end – not enough notice. Click Here to visit our Severance Package Calculator
Contracts, whether they are written or not, and so long as they don’t violate a statute, also affect your rights as an employee.
