LinkedIn Q&A: When Can an Employer Dismiss an Employee Without an Excuse?

A recent Supreme Court of Canada Decision has confirmed that non-unionized, federally regulated employees have more job protection than their provincial counterparts. As a result, federally regulated employers do not have as much flexibility when it comes to “letting someone go” without cause, and employees may have more job security than they thought. 

Join Natalie and Stuart for a LinkedIn Q&A as they discuss dismissals, and the impact of this decision employers and employees in the federal sector. 

This is a free session available to anyone with a LinkedIn account. The session will run for approximately 30 minutes on the Rudner MacDonald LinkedIn page.

Ultimate Software Interactive HR Workshop: Responding to Allegations of Harassment

10:30 a.m. – 11:30 am
Responding to Allegations of Harassment

Once known as a rock star, Jian Ghomeshi and his former employer, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC), are now the prime examples of workplace sexual harassment gone unchecked. Since the scandal broke, the CBC has been in damage-control mode. No employer wants to be in this position. In light of the tremendous legislative changes that this case has brought forth, and the dramatically expanded obligations of employers, it is critical that employers understand how to properly respond to allegations of harassment in the workplace. Furthermore, Bill 132, which comes into force in September 2016, imposes positive requirements on employers that will mandate updates to harassment policies and investigation programs. Failure to comply can lead to penalties. Join this interactive presentation to discuss issues of workplace harassment with an employment law expert at Rudner MacDonald. Topics covered will include recognizing harassment in the workplace, the legal framework for responding to and investigating a complaint, the expanding scope of liability and increasing monetary awards, compliance with Bill 132’s reforms to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, and best practices for policies, programs, and creating a positive, harassment-free workplace.
