Hello,

The scheduling people have fixed the final exam in this course for Saturday April 13 at 9 a.m.

As previously noted, it will be a take-home exam that you type out on your computer and upload to Moodle.  I will explain the details of this later, but mark in your schedules that you need to be in a place where you can access Internet and write an exam in piece from 9 to 11:30 (2.5 hours) on April 13.  If you have no Internet access or available space to write by yourself at that time, you will need to let me know.  If necessary, the room at York can be used but in that case the exam will be written out in booklets like a normal exam.

Hello all,  if you are reading this, you are probably enrolled in HRM3420, Employment Law in the Winter term, 2019.  This is a Distance course, hosted on this website. 

Presentation of the Course

The course will be hosted on this blog.  Each Wednesday a new lecture will be posted here.  I have already posted the first two week’s lectures to get you started.  Find the lectures under the Lectures tab at the top of this blog. The lecture blog entries will include a summary of what is covered, notes, and a link to Camtasia audio/visual lecture that I have recorded an earlier live version of this class covering the material assigned for the week.

Note that I recorded lectures earlier this year but there were technical problems with some of them, so I am re-using recordings of lectures from a couple of years ago.  The materials, text, and readings are the same, so this is fine, but you will see that some of the classroom discussions relate to events from a couple of years ago.

There is a Moodle website for this course as well, but that is used only to post the final take home exam and for me to send emails to the class.  The course materials you will need are found on this blog. Please book mark it, familiarize yourself with its setup, and return regularly to check if there is any new material or announcements.

The outline, with the readings, is available under the Outline tab above.  You will need the password to access it, which will be emails to the class and also posted on the Course Moodle website. Check the email you gave the university as your preferred email, including in the junk folder.  If you are enrolled in the course and you do not receive that email, please contact me (ddoorey@yorku.ca) and I will check your enrolment status. Keep up.  If you fall behind you will have great difficulty catching up.

Class Preparation

This is not a textbook memorization course.  You need to do the readings, and then think about how to apply what your read to different scenarios.  You also need to think critically by understanding some key debates in employment law that we will discuss through the term, often in the lectures.  The Outline explains what to read.  It is a good idea to practice answering the questions at the end of the assigned chapters.

Questions and Comments

On this blog, there is a a link called Leave a Reply at the end of each blog post.  If you ask a question there, I will respond at some point during the week.  Comments need to be approved by me before it appears, so there will be a lag from the time you post the question to the time you see it and my answer on the blog.  You can also email me (ddoorey@yorku.ca) questions if you prefer.

Law of Work Website 

My main public law blog is called the Law of Work. That blog includes links to stories and discussions about work law and you can also link to this course blog by following the tab called Current Courses at the top.  The Law of Work will regularly post material and stories that are relevant to your course.

That’s it for now. Professor Doorey.
