Canadian Employment Law Updates for 2019: Best Practices and Key Rules for Operating North of the Border

Live Webinar: Wednesday, January 16, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to stay compliant with Canadian employment laws to avoid legal liability for your operations outside the U.S.



Is your organization looking to expand north of the border?

Employers contemplating operations in Canada—as well as those already operating there—need to understand the complexities of Canadian employment laws. Canada’s national and provincial governments both have jurisdiction over employment practices, and in many instances Canadian laws differ dramatically from those in the States—perhaps most notably because Canada does not recognize the concept of at-will employment. So, what does all of this mean for you as an employer in Canada?

If you’re not prepared, you can find yourself in legal hot water.

Join us on January 16 for a webinar where we’ll give updates on the latest Canadian employment laws and regulations that affect how you conduct business there, so you can minimize your company’s legal risks for 2019.

You’ll learn:

  • How to tell if your industry is covered under Canada’s federal or provincial laws—and which laws apply
  • The laws governing labor relations, human rights, pay equity, occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation, and privacy in Canada that matter to U.S. businesses
  • Canadian employment standards you must meet, such as minimum wage, meal and rest periods, holiday pay, and more
  • How to legally terminate non-union employees, since Canada doesn’t recognize at-will employment
  • The major ways Canada’s labor relation laws differ from those in the United States
  • What your Canadian anti-harassment policy should state
  • Types of universal health insurance, unemployment benefits, and supplemental benefit plans Canadian employees are entitled to
  • And much more!
