Canadian Law of Work Forum (CLWF) launched in 2020 as a space for academics, practitioners, and students to discuss and exchange ideas on work law, labour policy, and industrial relations. If you are interested in contributing, please see the Submissions Page.


The views expressed by the authors here ARE NOT LEGAL ADVISE, they are comments at a general level discussing legal rules, events, and policies.  Each real case turns on its own facts.  Speak to a lawyer if you have questions about your situation. Also, the comments and opinions expressed are those of author and not the hosts of this blog.   Contact the authors directly if you have questions about their post. 


Comments are accepted and welcome but are moderated.  Only constructive, respectful comments from people who include their real name will be accepted.  Anonymous comments will be rejected.


To help offset development and hosting fees and to hire a part-time student to help maintain the website, CLWF has included an ad box that is sized at 150 x 1200.  CLWF reaches a national audience of readers interested in labour and employment law, industrial relations, unions, HRM, and other related areas.  Please contact David Doorey at for information on advertising.


CLWF evolved from Law of Work Blog, which was created by Professor David Doorey of York University in 2008.  Law of Work was selected as the top law blog in Canada on several occasions and was an initial inductee into the Canadian Law Blog Hall of Fame.  The Law of Work catalogue has been archived on CLWF.   While Law of Work was principally the work of Prof. Doorey, Canadian Law of Work Forum is a collaborative national blog that depends on contributions from readers, academics, practitioners, and students.
