Federal labour and employment law is experiencing a period of dramatic change, resulting from legislative reform of labour standards and significant decisions from the courts and tribunals. In this Federal Sector Update, we will discuss recent and proposed legal changes and will highlight how federal employers can best adapt their policies and practices to ensure legal compliance.

Specific topics include:

  • The upcoming appeal in the Supreme Court of Canada of the Federal Court of Appeal’s recent decision on the duty to inspect locations that an employer does not control
  • Actual and proposed changes to labour standards under the Canada Labour Code to promote ‘work life balance’
  • The new regulatory framework to address workplace harassment and violence
  • Significant decisions from the Canada Industrial Relations Board
