Description

While very similar from a commercial standpoint, Canadian and U.S. laws differ in important respects when it comes to employment issues. Appreciating these differences is critical when advising clients on their entry to Canada (a typical launching point for U.S. companies seeking to expand globally) or their existing Canadian operations to avoid unintended consequences. This roundtable will provide a Canadian employment law 101 overview.

This program was recorded as part of Corporate Counsel's Women, Influence, and Power in Law Virtual Conference held on October 27th, 2020.
