Fasken Martineau's Labour, Employment and Human Rights group is pleased to invite you to a training session on time theft in the age of technology.

Ever evolving, the "typical" workweek now tends to vary and several employees find themselves performing their tasks independently, without immediate supervision. Although often profitable, this kind of situation can result in questions about the truth of the number of work hours reported and the activities actually performed by these employees. What powers does an employer have in these circumstances? Can the employer investigate and if yes, to what extent? Do the courts really punish time theft as a "theft"? This presentation will demystify the concept of time theft from various perspectives and for different kinds of employment, since after all, supervision or no supervision, every employee must still act faithfully and provide the work expected.

This training session is available via webcast.

Don't miss our next training session on September 28, 2016: Amendments to the Environment Quality Act: Towards a new environmental authorization scheme and other proposals.

This training session is an invitation only event. For all queries, please contact Steeve Nadon at 514 397 5182 or
