Employee Misconduct in Canada
May 15, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
What can you do if you suspect an employee is stealing?
Can you fire someone for coming to work while awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test?
Employee misconduct is nothing new, but the pandemic, remote work, financial pressures, and health concerns have exacerbated the situation. Not every instance of misconduct, however, justifies dismissal. As an HR leader, it is crucial to understand what you can and cannot do, when an investigation is required, and how to protect your organization from liability.
Canadian employment lawyer, Stuart Rudner, leads this online session to look at the legal considerations for employers in the event of misconduct. This will include assessing the need for an investigation and determining appropriate discipline.
We’ll look at some relevant examples of employee misconduct, such as:
- Refusal to follow COVID-19 guidelines
- Time theft (in remote work)
- Bullying and harassment
- Off-duty social media use
- Fraud and theft
Join us on May 13 for a 60-minute live presentation and Q&A session on Employee Misconduct in Canada.
