Any questions on the term paper.
to think and guide people that this is the approach you are going to take
What’s the call you are making
Make calls. You have to think as managers
What is the right business call
There is no right or wrong answer it should make sense
each provision of your agreement : each clause is the describtion
Concept and principle:
You have everything to go.
Provisions: are they fair. Do you think that there should be there that should guide.
Corrective measures: adding into the agreement
e.g: for women you are pregnant and you have an employment contract after 4
months you have a miscarriage or abortion etc you actually become medically ill what
provision will allow you to get paid work days off and you will be getting a
percentage of salary -> if child is born…. Who covers you? You have to go back to
employment insurance package. Who covers the gab.
You may have parental leave but you don’t think of any other leave
What is the rule in your contract .. it’s the matter of corrective measure
Alot of women do not think that this should be covered.
You have to take care of yourself.
Think about your situation suppose you have a kid that is physically handicap that you
want one month you want a relief break.
Or you have a parent that is need of services you are a primary caretaker.
Was a Carleton university student in the actual bus?
Do they have life insurance? Who pays for the funeral?
Corrective measures: the stuff those are not in the contract or not properly explained.
e.g: in my contract they have background inquiry it doesn’t say how long back how
far should they go check your background check . The time frame is not mentioned
you can talk about that.
Chapter 5, 6, 7,8,9 Contract why is it imp
Contract is the actual execution of a promise between two parties or more where there
is mutual consideration and it’s enforceable in law.
So the idea is it’s a promise made between two or more parties that it deals …….
I am doing something that I am getting something return.
There is a box that actually says donate, who actually took a poppy and didn’t donate.
So to make a long if I take a poppy and not put a penny in the box why? It’s suppose
to be a box for donation so I could take a wish and say wish you the best
Why is it poppy a Canadian symbol for November 11.
It’s a poem written by
The poppy was a flower that was on a battlefield
It’s a symbol of regrowing
First world war: we did not retreat the dead bodies from the battlefield. Dead bodies
were decomposing then poppy grow on high density of calcium. These people are
dead yo have a duty to safeguard and take care of your society
If not then you have given up
Moto of Montreal something in the locker room:
NHL office in Toronto, if you go there it’s the statement it’s the symbol of
Story we carry high the torch it’s upto you to carry it.
Everything is connected in business.
If I go to church, there are actual candles that light up 3 bucks for small and 5 bucks
for big ones and it says put the coins in the box. Suppose you only have 3 bucks do
you light the candles, you are in a church are you buying spirit? I gave 2 box am I
legally allowed? Technically allowed yes you are.
If you were in a mall yes you have to pay it’s a private setting you are required to pay
the right amount.
What are the element that actually generates the legal factors behind the creation of
1. Communication: is all the element how you enter the agreement and we
understand how we get together to create the contract e.g: that I am a form of
all the provision, and all the party unders
e.g: we are getting winter season where you get influenza, hospitals in Canada
have been developing new ways to deal with Cdeficil . the penicillin shot is
not enough to kill the bacteria Cdeficil. We do now is we actual ask the
patients to collect the their stool for 34 days. We could ask your relative for
next 5 days. So we bring it to hospital to check the actual culture of the
bacteria. This is an issue of communication are employees informed about
this are you suppose to do it? Is it in your contract. The question is
e.g: you work for McDonald’s or burger king. Lobby: who cleans the
bathrooms, did you go in the men bathroom, employment contract
Point is this, policy: wash your hands and sterilize it, managers reminded us
2. Bargain power: we presume that everybody has the capacity to negotiate and
they have the tools to properly represent themselves. It means they are able to take of care of their own affairs. You will apply the
reasonable objective test. Will a reasonable person enter this contract in that
capacity? That’s the reasonable objective test..
e.g: will a guy wave his patron’s for his past, b. we don’t know the conditions
and promises, maybe I am giving you the job that have economic pension and
e.g: Montreal Canadian had a fantastic player mr. gomez he was paid upto 8 m
dollars a year and scored 2 goals 2 years ago. He had a clause to American
hockey league. There was a strike of hockey he couldn’t even make to the
actual garage week in Alaska he couldn’t even make the team in the bush
league. They gave him out, and we will pay you to get rid of them. They paid
to get rid of a guy they cashed him out. That being said it’s an example for that
3. economic reality: the context that we negotiate / sign the agreement. Going
from the interest rate, going from the actual environment of the
10 years ago we had a lot of daily traders on stock market they would make
fantastic revenue the stock market dried up, they are rare bread now. If you
weren’t doing it 10 years you were a yahoo if you are doing it today you are a
In 1985 we used to teach a lot of concept about Japanese, they had this cash,
they were bringing up lots of these concepts, you remember those things we
don’t use it so we don’t remember, today we don’t even teach these techniques
we don’t even talk about it, things change.
4. Business relationship: stepbystep approach that we use to achieve results.
how do we actually conclude the actual result of negotiation ?
how did we get this party to agree
e.g: this british group: are they are still playing together no, how are we going
to get this guy to come
Lets say he was in justin beiber in brazil come out of jail ? he was charged
with criminal offence he was find with a lady, he is the second person in the
