2019 Year in Review… And what to expect in 2020

  • Changes to the federal Canada Labour Code.

2. Harassment in the Workplace

  • Can an employee launch a stand-alone lawsuit for harassment? What does this mean
    for employers?
  • “Forum shopping” and the potential for multiple claims at the same time.

3. Drugs and Alcohol in the Workplace

  • Cannabis legalization- where do we stand?
  • Trends in “addiction” case law.

4. Trends in Employment Agreements

  • New case law on the enforceability of termination provisions.
