Annette Nierobisz


Annette's research interests are broadly located in the sociology of work and occupations and the sociology of law.  Her research has examined workplace sexual harassment complaints, the social construction of professional authority in law school classrooms, judicial decisions on employment terminations, and the impact that Canada’s statutory human rights framework has had on the emergence of a comprehensive set of sexual orientation equality rights in the workplace and beyond.  In her current research Annette is examining how older workers who have lost their jobs in the Great Recession experience unemployment. 

Annette completed her Ph.D. at the University of Toronto and began her position in Carleton’s SOAN Department in 2000.  In 2003, she was invited to be a visiting scholar at the Center for the Study of Law and Society, University of California, Berkeley.  From 2006-08, Annette served as the Senior Researcher at the Research and Statistical Analysis Division of the Canadian Human Rights Commission.
