Course Code: CEHR 1240
It's hard to stand up for your rights if you don't know what they are. But not to worry. This course will introduce you to the Québec Labour Code and the Labour Standards Act, the legal regulations, rights and obligations that define the employer-employee relationship, employment contracts, how disputes and grievances are settled and more. You'll acquire the knowledge and skills to apply legislation in your workplace, create a safe, secure, non-discriminatory workplace, protect privacy and ensure legal compliance. It's a compelling course that any employer or employee can benefit from. On that point, we rest our case.
