An employment relationship is considered to be a contract between the employer and the employee. In general, the employer-employee relationship is governed by the general law of contracts. However, courts have recognized that employment contracts have many characteristics that set them apart from ordinary commercial agreements. This is because the imbalance of power between employers and employees rarely results in free and equal bargaining at the time of contract formation. This power imbalance has led courts to treat employees as a vulnerable group, particularly in light of the far-reaching effects of changing a person’s employment status.
Employment law, employee rights and employer responsibilities are determined and governed by various legislative acts and bills. Enforcement is through various courts and tribunals and depends on the type of matter and employment classification (i.e. employee, contracted worker, construction worker, etc.).
