This website isn't a traditional legal blog, rather it covers the intersection of public policy, post-secondary education, labour markets, the Canadian economy, and workplace law. Through timely commentary the website educates young people, policy makers, lawyers and other interested parties on emerging issues in the labour market. Also, the website serves as a testing ground for deploying emerging social media technology in communicating knowledge about workplace law to young people.
Youth and Work was founded by Andrew Langille, who is a Toronto based lawyer and a graduate student at Osgoode Hall Law School. Andrew's background in labour litigation, student organizations and community legal clinics gives him a unique perspective from which to comment on emerging issues in the youth labour market. Through his experiences in the private, public, and non-profit sectors he has gained insights into the range of issues that young workers are facing in the new economy.
If you have any questions for Andrew about Youth and Work his contact information is available here. He's available as a speaker, commentator and consultant for organizations that work with young workers, students and youth; furthermore, as time permits he acts as counsel to individuals and organizations on labour, employment, and human rights matters.
