A year-in-review: terminations, human rights and pensions

November 18, 2010

The past year has seen a number of interesting employment law decisions by the courts. Cases have seen courts recognize a category of "dependent contractor" with reasonable notice of termination entitlements, the award of a lengthy notice period despite gaps in continuous employee service and the consideration of when an employment contract can be considered frustrated by an employee's disability. Meanwhile, new pension legislation at both the Ontario and federal level will have employment law ramifications.

The webcast of a recent seminar hosted by Stikeman Elliott and the Association of Corporate Counsel, which featured a number of industry panellists and considered these developments and their impact on employers, is now available online. Printed material is also available.
