On September 13th, Christopher Deehy participated in a panel on challenging terminations, which took place during the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers’ (CACE) 16th annual conference in Ottawa.
The panel discussed practical tips to assist in managing challenging termination requests from clients, including:
- during statutorily-protected leaves;
- while on a work visa;
- during sick leave;
- when returning from a lengthy pregnancy/parental leave;
- in the federal context in the post-Wilson world in the absence of just cause (and in other jurisdictions with similar protections).
