The Latest Chapter in Employment Law: The Duty of Good Faith in Employment Contracts

In 2015, the decision in Styles v Alberta Investment Management Corporation made waves in the employment bar by granting an employee substantial damages for the value of bonuses payable under the employer’s Long-Term Incentive Plan (the “LTIP”), even though the employee did not appear to meet the eligibility criteria for payment set out in the LTIP. This award was based […]


Dealing with Marijuana in the Workplace

As our latest First Reference Talks blog post discusses, Health Canada estimates that by 2024, 450,000 Canadians will be authorized to use medically-prescribed marijuana. Pending legalization may also create an increase in people “self–medicating” and casually using marijuana. I am increasingly being asked to speak about this subject at HR conferences, as employers are concerned about the practical implications of […]

Employment Contracts & Termination Clauses: Don’t Forget to Consider Consideration

Our recent Canadian HR Law blog post discusses the topic of termination clauses. Our firm has written multiple times on the ever-complicated, ever-changing, and certainly unpredictable realm of case law surrounding termination clauses in employment contracts.

Unfortunately, many make the mistake of dismissing unusual requests […]

Top 10 Employment Law Developments of 2016

One might think that by the year 2017, employment law would be settled and there would be few, if any, issues that are unpredictable or where the law is “open to interpretation”. That would be wishful thinking; 2016 included its share of new developments, surprising court decisions, and significant legislative developments. The reality is that as social attitudes evolve, the […]
