We are pleased to announce that this year, we will once again be holding our Blitz Training Session for legal advisors, just in time for the end of the mandatory continuing education compliance period.
This one-day event is a unique opportunity to accumulate 10 hours of certified continuing education recognized by the Québec Bar at a cost of $200.
All the training sessions will be given at our Montreal office and may also be attended by webcast.
Block A – Labour, Employment and Human Rights
When do changes to your employees' working conditions cross the constructive dismissal line?
While the notion of constructive dismissal may be well known, its parameters are relatively vague and imprecise. This can result in a conflict between the rights of employers and those of employees. How far can employers go before a change will be considered as "substantially altering a substantive condition" of a worker's employment agreement? This is the question our speakers will try to answer.
Block B – Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Latest developments in contractual law – overview of leading decisions and their impact
Our speakers will go over the recent decisions that have had a major impact on the drafting and interpretation of contracts. They will present a pragmatic analysis of these decisions in order to familiarize lawyers who draft and interpret contracts with the latest case law developments and help them understand how their practice might be affected.
