2020, The Year in Review: Employment Litigation

2020, The Year in Review Webinar Series
When (ET)
Where Webinar Get directions


While COVID-19 has distracted us from the normal business of workplace law, the courts have nonetheless been busy issuing decisions. To help ensure you don't lose track of the important court decisions, Fasken's Labour, Employment and Human Rights group invites you to attend our  "2020, The Year in Review: Employment Litigation" webinar, part of our  "2020, The Year in Review" Premier Webinar Series. During this live webinar, we will review significant employment litigation decisions from across Canada dealing with the following issues:

The Good:

  • Short notice periods are appropriate for short-service employees
  • No claims in negligence for improper workplace investigations
  • Dishonesty, disparaging emails and other misconduct that are cause for termination

The Bad:

  • When botched investigations and unfounded allegations can hurt you
  • The dangers of fixed-term employment agreements
  • Entitlements to incentive pay, stock options and commissions during the reasonable notice period

The Ugly:

  • The Waksdale decision and beyond: courts continue to whittle away termination provisions
  • Employment class action certified
  • The Ontario Securities Commission's first whistleblower reprisal case is a cautionary tale for employers


  • 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET / 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PT  -  Presentation and Q&A
