I’m Teaching a Weekend Employment Law Course


In a moment of insanity, I agreed to teach a weekend long crash course in Employment Law to help prepare HRM professionals for the new mandatory legal knowledge exams required to obtain the CHRP/CHRL designations.  The course will be held at York University on April 14-15 2019 and will be hosted by the School of Continuing Studies.

Students will receive a copy of my textbook The Law of Work: Complete Edition (a $130 value, and with an autograph, it will be priceless!)

Here is the registration and information page.

The course will  focus on the content emphasized in the exams, including the Common Law  of Employment (employment contract law and tort law), and Regulatory Law (especially employment standards and human rights, with some occupational health and safety as well).  I will be using the text as well as a series of helpful handouts to assist the attendees to quickly understand how the laws work.  I have a super smart Osgoode Hall law student preparing a mock multiple choice exam that students can do to test their knowledge.

Although the course is being marketed as an exam prep courses, frankly I think it will be really useful to anyone interested in a refresher on key elements of work place law in Ontario.  We are capping numbers, so if you are interested, I’d recommend enrolling quickly.

Hope to see you there, David

    I took Prof. Doorey’s Employment course years ago. It was a great foundation for my work. I’m sure anyone taking this course will enjoy the experience. The York Website confirms this course is April 14-15, 2018.
