The Canadian workforce is aging and older workers are making up a greater portion of the workforce. The impact on business strategy of this aging workforce will be significant. With the end of mandatory retirement, together with various downturns in the economy, this has led to many employees working longer. This aging workforce leads to more challenges, issues and litigation for employers. This session will look at issues employers often face when litigating claims by older workers, including those relating to:

  • Human rights claims, including before Human Rights Tribunals;
  • Accommodating medical absences;
  • The cessation or continuation of benefits at age 65;
  • Offering voluntary retirement packages;
  • Wrongful dismissal claims, including:
    • Increased periods of reasonable notice;
    • Claims for lost pension benefits; and
    • The interaction between disability benefits and wrongful dismissal damages
