Using fact patterns inspired by real cases, our panel of expert in-house and external counsel from both small and large firms, analyzes key ethical challenges you could face in your employment law practice. Whether you represent employees or employers, this program will give you effective strategies to tackle ethical dilemmas that arise in your interactions with your clients, opposing counsel and the courts, including the following:
- How do you respond when your plaintiff client insists that you pursue claims that are not legally/factually supported?
- Can you take on a new corporate client when you previously provided personal employment advice to its HR manager?
- What are your obligations when you learn that a contract you previously drafted may not meet ESA minimums?
- What do you do if you have designed HR policies that the CEO does not wish to apply to a favoured executive?
Janice Payne will co-chair this Law Society of Upper Canada CPD course along with Patrizia Piccolo of Rubin Thomlinson LLP.
