Rethinking Labour Law for the New World of Work

December 13, 2021

2021 Wall Scholar. Prof. Bethany Hastie was featured in Trek Magazine, speaking about her work exploring how Canada’s labour laws can evolve to serve a rapidly shifting 21st century labour market.

With a growing divergence between the legal regulation of work and its reality on the ground, she investigates what a meaningful system of labour rights must account for, and aims to make collective workplace representation more accessible, suitable, and effective for today’s workers.

Law reform needs to be attached to larger conversations about dignity at work, and what that looks like today.
