Can employers force their employees to work on public holidays?
If your job requires a uniform, can the employer make you pay for it?
What can you do if you think you have been fired from your job unfairly?
These are a few of the questions explored in the Steps to Justice Employment Law workshop now available on the OJEN website.
Using hypothetical scenarios to guide their inquiries, students navigate CLEO’s Steps to Justice website to find answers to the legal questions posed. While researching Employment Law, students also build legal capability by learning how to access practical legal information on some of the most commonly-experienced legal problems.
Steps to Justice is a plain language website, written and maintained by lawyers. It provides reliable, up-to-date information for Ontario residents facing a variety of legal problems. It walks the user through the legal steps they need to follow and includes links to relevant legal forms, self-help guides, definitions of complicated legal terms and referral information for legal and social services.
The Steps to Justice Employment Law Module comes with PowerPoint classroom presentation, student work sheets, six different employment law scenarios and a facilitator’s guide and answer sheet. The guide provides detailed instructions on how to deliver the workshop. Additional information with tips and information for presenters, can be found on a short training video available on the OJEN website.
Modules dealing with family law, domestic violence and abuse, housing law, criminal law and others will be posted in the near future. Watch for new Steps to Justice modules in the resources section of our website.
