Labour and Employment Law in the Federal Public Service, 2e describes the labour and employment law governing employees in the federal public administration, employees of Parliament, members of the RCMP, and other federal government employees (excluding members of the Canadian armed forces, judges, and employees of Crown corporations). Specifically, the book deals with the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act and the Public Service Employment Act, along with statutes specific to certain categories of government employees. It also discusses the leading cases and, where appropriate, a representative sample of decisions to explain or provide examples of particular points.

Part I provides an overview of federal public service labour and employment law, along with a historical overview of the topic. Part II considers the normal labour law topics as they apply to direct employees of the government and employees of government agencies. Part III concerns the unique terms and conditions of employment for both unionized and non-unionized employees (including political neutrality, whistle-blowing, pay issues, official languages, and pensions). Part IV involves the legal regulation of the employment relationship in the federal public service -- namely, the process for appointment to and within the federal public service. Part V considers Crown servants -- specifically, RCMP members and parliamentary employees -- ​who have special rules and statutory provisions governing their employment. Finally, Part VI considers the role that courts play in the regulation of federal public service labour and employment law.

In short, this book does exactly what it says on the tin.
