Hello all,

York has scheduled your final exam as follows:

Saturday April 8 at 7 p.m to 10 p.m

At 7 p.m., the final exam will appear on the course Moodle site and you will have 3 hours to type your answer in a Word document and then upload it to the Moodle site.  I will explain this process more fully before the exam.

If you prefer to write the exam in person at the University, you will have that option.  Soon the University will assign a room for the exam.  If you are going to write at the University, please let me know so that I know how many students are coming.  For students writing on campus, you will be permitted to bring in any notes, books you like, but not laptops and the electronic equipment.  The in-class option is for students who do not want the sounds of keyboard typing and other distractions.

Hello all.

The midterms have been graded.   You can see them by following the link below.  The grades are presented as a percentage (out of 100), although the test was graded out of 80 (50 marks for short answers and 30 marks for multiple choice).  The marks are listed by the last 6 digits of your student number.  If you do not see your number there, please let me know.

The average around 67, which is in the normal range for a midterm in a 300 level course.  The grades range from Fs to 95%.   If you like, you can pick up your midterm at the School of HRM office in the Atkinson Building by showing your student ID.  The midterms will be available for pickup until March 17.

Here are the midterm grades.

If you believe there is a simple addition problem, you can write a note and return the test to the School and I will look at it.  If you believe the grader made an error (i.e. missed a page, etc), you have a right to submit a ‘request for a grade reappraisal’ at the end of the term once you receive your final grade.  At that time, you can complete the required form explaining where you think the grader erred and the test then may be reviewed by a new person who can increase the grade, lower the grade, or leave it unchanged.

Thanks all, David

Hello all,

I will attach to the midterm a list of the names of cases that have been considered in the course so far.  I have updated the case list so it covers cases only up to Chapter 11, which is what is covered on the midterm.

Here is the list of cases.

What this lecture covers

This lecture begins with the material considering how the Common Law Regime governs the hiring and recruitment process.  In particular, we consider how judges have used tort law to police dishonesty in that process.  The lecture then moves on to the material covered in Chapter 7 of the textbook on The Requirements of Employment Contracts.

I refer to a story from the Toronto Star relating to discrimination based on citizenship.  Here is that story.
