Each year there are a handful of employment law cases that capture our attention as they have significant practical implications for the workplace or may be a sign of emerging trends. Topics will be diverse, ranging from the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision on drug and alcohol testing to recent Human Rights Tribunal decisions dealing with the duty to accommodate, including an employee’s reciprocal obligations. We will also look at new developments regarding an employer’s ability to make changes to an employee’s job during the course of employment. Attend this session to learn about some significant cases, what it means for you (and your bottom line), and how you can manage or mitigate against these risks.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain a better understanding of important new case law, on a variety of topics
  • How these decisions impact your business (i.e. what implications does it have for you)
  • How to mitigate against any associated risk
  • What are best practices in light of these new cases
