Canadian Employment Law: Compliance for Doing Business North of the Border

Better understand Canadian employment law and feel more confident in your ability to navigate employment issues that arise.

Why can't we just fire everyone? Can we get a strong noncompete? Aren't they considered at-will? Can we cut someone's pay? We have to do what? These are just a few of the many questions that American employers frequently ask their Canadian lawyers. This topic will answer all of these questions, as well as many more that you are sure to encounter if you have any employees working in Canada. Learn the basics of Canadian labor and employment law and gain practical information that will immediately improve your ability to deal with simple and complex employment issues. By the end of the material you will likely have a better understanding of Canadian employment law than most Canadians. The information will leave you feeling more confident in your ability to navigate employment issues that arise north of the boarder, and will provide you the opportunity to further develop cultural competency skills.
