Program Description

Canadian employers increasingly are facing issues that affect workplace productivity, including those relating to workplace rights and privacy, both on the job and away from it.  This webinar brings together a panel of legal experts from all corners of Canada who will provide insight and practical guidance on the following key issues affecting employers:

  • Harassment in the workplace: investigating complaints; strategies for avoiding claims and educating employees
  • Social Media and off-duty conduct: when do Facebook and Twitter become an employment issue
  • The latest rules and development on drug and alcohol testing of employees
  • Statutory enforcement of employment legislation and penalties
