Mastering the Simplified Employment Law Trial 

Jun. 8, 2020
Online

OBA Labour and Employment Law PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (EDT)

This program is part of the Labour and Employment Law Breakfast Series – Simplified Procedure and Small Claims Changes: Impacts for Your Employment Law Practice

The Revised Rule 76, coming into force on January 1, 2020, brings significant changes to how simplified trials will run. With a large percentage of wrongful dismissal claims now likely to fall under the simplified rules, it is essential that employment lawyers are current on the law, procedure and best practices of simplified trials. Join our expert panel to explore the new simplified procedure trial, including:

  • Simplified or summary trial? What's the difference and what will trials look like now?
  • What are the implications of affidavit evidence replacing in-chief examination for wrongful dismissal claims?
  • What does the costs limitation practically mean in employment law cases?
  • Navigating ethical and professionalism challenges
