...law provided police with ample justification for intervening in strikes and, when required, the militia was called up in aid of the civil power. Yet, state coercion alone proved insufficient to reduce labour conflict, and many provinces also enacted state-sponsored conciliation schemes that, for the most part, depended on the willingness of the parties to submit their disagreement voluntarily to tripartite panels authorized to make non-binding recommendations. These mechanisms were little used. As Canada entered the 20th century, the potential for labour...

The distinctive, even defining, feature of Australian federal labour law has been its institutionalised focus on compulsorily conciliated or arbitrated industrial awards as instruments for regulating relations between employers and employees. The scope and content of these awards has been the responsibility of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission and its predecessors, exercising powers under legislation made almost exclusively pursuant to section 51(xxxv) of the Constitution. The High Court's principal involvement in this complex...

...Contract Labor Law The 1885 Alien Contract Labor Law—popularly known as the Foran Act, for its chief sponsor, Representative Martin Foran, a Democrat from Ohio—was a signature piece of congressional legislation that for the first time in American history prohibited employers from recruiting immigrant workers from abroad or paying such workers’ passage to the United States. It pointedly reversed the earlier Contract Labor Act of 1864 , which had been passed in response to the labor shortages caused by the American Civil War. The 1864 act encouraged...

This interplay of influences from colonial labour law legacies, international labour law governance , and domestic labour situations largely defines the nature and character of labour law systems in many developing countries. Developing countries are faced with severe challenges to their labour law systems, some of which are local, while others are linked to the effect of globalization and commercialization. These challenges include the increasing trend of casualization and informalization of labour as enterprises restructure. This trend has resulted...

... Laws The intention of this entry is not to provide an exhaustive account of issues surrounding labour laws in general, but rather to critically describe some aspects of a significant law which acts as a metaphor for labour laws in general—the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 (IDA). I concentrate in particular on the scheme to resolve labour disputes and examine the IDA as an ostensible social security system. Among the many labour laws in India, the IDA probably reflects some of the most significant idiosyncrasies, one of which is the fact that it has a...

Racially based immigration law had made it difficult for Asian men to settle in Canada, and almost impossible for Asian women. Racist whites then expressed fears that Asian men from the overwhelmingly male immigrant community would seek social, sexual, and marital liaisons with white women. The ‘White Women’s Labour Laws' were designed to reduce interracial social connection in a setting where Asian men were thought to be capable...
