Canada's highest court has ruled that union-employer contracts automatically include rights and obligations set out in human rights and labour relations legislation. At issue was the firing of a probationary employee returning to work from maternity leave — whose contract included no specific restrictions on such dismissals. The ruling sets a precedent that can be cited in labour-management cases nationwide.
