Book Spotlight - April 2018

Posted by Peel Law Association on 12 April 2018

Continue to watch this space for promotions highlighting one of the books recently added to the PLA Library collection, as well as old favourites we think may be of interest to our PLA Library users.

Today's spotlight is on the book, The Law of Employee Monitoring in Canada 2nd edition by Melanie R. Bueckert and Daniel J. Michaluk. This text was recently added to the PLA Library Collection and is available for borrowing for current PLA Members.

From the Publisher
Employee monitoring and surveillance presents thorny legal issues within the Canadian workplace environment. This is currently the only book to focus exclusively on the privacy, security and broader concerns that employers and their advisors must address. The Law of Employee Monitoring in Canada, 2nd Edition offers advice, legislative analysis, case law and jurisprudence from privacy commissioners as applicable to both unionized and non-unionized workplaces in jurisdictions across Canada.

Bueckert and Michaluk shed valuable light on the subject of employee monitoring and have produced a comprehensive resource that offers insight on the latest cases, practical precedents and best practices in this evolving area of the law.
