It is essential that human resources professionals in the federal public sector understand their roles and responsibilities towards respecting collective agreements and terms and conditions of employment. This course provides labour relations advisors and human resources specialists with a comprehensive overview of collective agreements and the terms and conditions of employment, including the information they need to correctly respond to questions about employee rights and obligations in the workplace. Participants will gain a better understanding of the day-to-day application of collective agreements and their impact on human resources management decisions.

Topics include:

  • outlining the structure and content of collective agreements
  • understanding the rules and principles for interpreting collective agreements
  • applying flexibility in terms and conditions of employment to support work-life balance
  • clarifying the scope of managers' delegated authority in applying the provisions of collective agreements


It is strongly recommended that learners complete Labour Relations in the Federal Public Sector before registering to this course, which represents the common core learning in labour relations for managers and human resources specialists.

Note: If the course is currently full, check back in mid-summer. The September courses will be posted at that time.
