This Seneca College (Toronto) law and business teacher has produced for human resource managers and professional personnel a useful summary of many of the provisions, interpretations, and applications of Canadian human rights legislation.

Starting with an overview of the Canadian human rights environment, history, and nature, the author goes on to discuss relevant issues regarding human resource management — from human resource planning to job analysis, recruitment, selection, training and development, performance appraisal, compensation , and employee termination. Special areas of concern include affirmative action, equal pay, occupational health, and safety and labor relations.

A table of cases at the end of the text provides further source materials, particularly for those wanting to pursue a specific subject in more detail. The book constitutes an initial source of essential and critical working-world information in a quick-and-easy reference format.
