Constructive Dismissal and Terminations

- 01:30 PM

Though often necessary, changes to an employee’s duties and responsibilities can, if not properly implemented, lead to allegations of constructive dismissal and ultimately litigation. Allegations of wrongful dismissal may occur when an employee termination is not handled correctly. The McLennan Ross Labour & Employment team has a wealth of experience assisting clients to manage their workforce while minimizing this risk.

In this seminar, Christopher Buchanan and Marco Baldasaro reviewed the law and covered the latest developments regarding constructive dismissal and terminations.

Topics covered in this presentation included:

  • Notice requirements and other best practices when implementing fundamental changes to an employment contract
  • Constructive dismissal allegations in the context of hostility or harassment
  • Traps to avoid and best practices in terminating employees
  • Employee mitigation responsibilities following constructive dismissal and termination

This webinar was designed for in-house counsel, human resources and labour relations professionals.
