Toronto ON

OBA Labour and Employment Law PROGRAM | 7:30 AM to 10:00 AM

Conventional wisdom suggests that roughly 95 percent of lawsuits settle. With so few cases going to trial, you will resolve far more cases than you will litigate. This reality requires that, regardless of your experience level, you must stay apprised of current trends and hot spots in settlement practice and procedures. Our expert faculty will share valuable insight on the key topics and intersecting considerations that arise when settling employment cases and how to best leverage your expertise to maximize your client’s outcome. Join us to explore:

  • Dealing with related claims: disability, human rights and Canada Labour Code
  • How to handle payments and return of property
  • Essential tax and pension considerations
  • Helpful advice for drafting Minutes and Releases: critical clauses and best practices
  • Addressing legal fees
  • Disposing of the lawsuit or administrative action
