Employment Law Essentials

Minimize the risk of employer liability and litigation

The roots of employment law stretch back to the time of the Black Death. Today it is contemplating such subjects as gender inclusion, the blurring of work and personal time, and corporate whistle blowing. 

This program describes the current Canadian landscape in employment and human rights law. It looks at the legislation regulating employment standards, acceptable workplace conduct, dismissal, discrimination and other essential elements of the employment relationship. It also explores legal developments in emerging “hot button” areas, such as privacy protection and the use of technology and social media in the workplace.

“The program leader was very engaging. He often cited real cases that he was involved with or has deep knowledge of, and took the time to break down the court's decisions.”

Tom Ng - Senior Mechanical Project Manager, Kinder Morgan
