Employment Law 101 Presentation

Accommodation laws exist to ensure all employees have fair and equal access to work.

An employer’s responsibility is to provide a workplace that is free from discrimination. In some cases, that may require accommodation for an employee’s specific needs, such as

  • Physical, mental or neurological disability
  • Childcare obligations
  • Addiction
  • Gender identity

Log on to our live webinar on February 26, 2020, at 2:00 pm EST as we discuss the requirements for workplace accommodation in Canada. Learn when the duty to accommodate is triggered, how to respond to a request for accommodation, and how to determine “undue hardship.”
A Canadian HR Law Essential for all employers.

Can I fire him?

It’s one of the most common questions employers ask, and one of the most difficult for employment lawyers to answer – because it always “depends.”

There are so many nuances to take into account when it comes to disciplining and terminating employees. With that in mind, Talent Canada and Turf & Rec magazines are proud to co-present an employment law webinar designed to educate professionals on the law of discipline and dismissal.

Featuring Stuart Rudner, founder of Rudner Law – an award-winning boutique employment law firm in Markham, Ont. – it will cover a wide range of issues including:

  • The law of dismissal
  • How to calculate the amount of severance
  • Best practice in dismissals
  • Handling misconduct
  • Just cause for dismissal
  • And more.

Rudner is also the author of You’re Fired: Just Cause for Dismissal in Canada, and he makes regular appearances in national media – including CTV News, CBC News, CP24 and The Globe & Mail.

The conversation will be moderated by Mike Jiggens, the editor of Turf & Rec magazine.

“This is a great opportunity to hear from one of Canada’s leading employment lawyers,” said Todd Humber, group publisher at Annex Business Media that looks after Talent Canada and Turf & Rec. “There is so much confusion, and a lot of room for error, when it comes to what you can and can’t do in discipline and terminations.”

The webinar runs on Feb. 25 from noon to 1 p.m. ET, and features an opportunity to ask questions directly to Rudner.
