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

July 7

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.

Learning Objectives

  • You will be able to explain the key differences between American and Canadian employment law issues.
  • You will be able to recognize potential employment law problems before they become major issues.
  • You will be able to review existing employment relationships and contracts to highlight what needs updating.
  • You will be able to identify when a matter can be handled internally and when it should be handed over to legal counsel.
