Employment Law You Need to Know

Your employment relationship is governed by a legal contract. For most of  us, it is also your source of income and a critical component of your family’s financial health. So why would you make decisions based upon assumptions and misinformation?

We are navigating unprecedented circumstances, and businesses are struggling. Can your employer lay you off or reduce your hours? Do you know how much severance you are entitled to if you are let go?

Don’t sign an Employment Contract that could cost you tens of thousands of dollars, or allow your employer to change key terms at will. 

Join this interactive session in which we will address these critical considerations. This will help you to make informed decisions that affect your livelihood.

  • COVID-19 and the Workplace
    • Can you be laid off or have your pay reduced?
    • Can a job offer be revoked?
  • What to Watch out for in Your Next Offer
  • Severance: is it really one month per year?

Please join Charlene Bergman, Managing Director of Farber Interim Management & Executive Search along with Stuart Rudner, founder of Rudner Law, one of the top 3 Employment and Labour Boutiques in Canada.

COVID-19 and the Workplace: What you need to know

The COVID-19 virus has turned our world upside down. We are in a state of emergency, people have been told to self-isolate or socially distance, and non-essential businesses have been ordered to close. Businesses that remain open have seen dramatic drops in revenue. While legislation has been amended to provide for new leaves and increased eligibility for Employment Insurance benefits and other support, employers are struggling to understand their rights. Although many are turning to temporary layoffs or salary reductions, the reality is that those may constitute constructive dismissals and expose the company to liability that exceeds any cost savings.

Stuart and Nadia will lead a session in which they will discuss options for reducing labour costs and how to implement them, the assistance available to employers and employees, and the laws regarding the duty to maintain a safe workplace in this unprecedented situation.

If you are a business owner or manager, you have been required to make some tough decisions recently amidst the difficult times of this COVID-19 Pandemic. Are you overwhelmed by all the constant changes and updates on laws and regulations? Are you worried about the impact your decisions may have in the short/mid/long term?

This Wednesday, we are so excited to have well-known Employment Lawyer and Mediator Stuart Rudner come online with us to talk about some key HR legal implications of COVID-19 now and when business begins to reopen including:

  • Layoffs
  • Ensuring a safe workplace
  • Reducing hours or wages
  • Terminations
  • The Future and when business begins to reopen
