2020 Employment Caselaw Update [WEBCAST ONLY] 

9 déc. 2020

OBA Labour & Employment Law PROGRAM | 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM (ET)

2020 has truly been a memorable year. This includes in the area of employment law where a number of decisions have been released by the Supreme Court of Canada and Ontario Courts that will have a lasting impact on employment litigation and employment agreements. At this program we will review the following decisions:

  1. The Supreme Court of Canada, in Matthews v. Ocean Nutrition Canada Ltd., clarified how additional compensation should be taken into account during a constructive dismissal or a termination without cause;
  2. The Supreme Court of Canada, in Uber Technologies Inc. v. Heller, provided guidance on enforceability of arbitration clauses in service contracts;
  3. The Ontario Court of Appeal, in Waksdale v. Swegon North America Inc., provided guidance on severability of termination clauses and employment contracts generally; and
  4. The Ontario Superior Court of Justice, in Kerner v. Information Builders (Canada) Inc., clarified when an employee is entitled to commission payments after termination.

Join our expert faculty, all of whom were involved in the litigation of these cases, to hear what impact these decisions will have on your employment law practice, whether litigating or drafting employment agreements. If you provide advice to employees or employers, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear unique insights on the latest employment law developments and make sure that your practice is up to date.
