The Fissured Workplace & Precarious Employment:
Creative Responses for Workers, Employers and Labour Market Regulation

The modern workplace is changing. Many employers seek efficiencies through franchising, contracting out, hiring casual employees, and outsourcing to other countries. This is causing uncertainty for an increasing number of Canadian workers, particularly women, youth, and other vulnerable minorities. Christie lecturers Michael Mitchell and John Murray are currently advising the government of Ontario on these issues.

On March 17, three panels consisting of local labour relations specialists will participate in the Innis Christie symposium at the Schulich School of Law and will examine unionized sectors, non-unionized sectors, and issues in the workplace in Atlantic Canada.
