When can an employer take action for the off-duty conduct an employee? This webinar will examine the increasingly blurred line between an employee’s personal and professional lives and what it means for employers.

In particular, attendees will learn how best to address different types of off-duty conduct employees may engage in, including:

  • Criminal charges/convictions

As a general proposition, Canadians are missing more days of work than they used to, and absenteeism is costing employers money in the form of lost productivity, disrupted workplaces, lower worker morale, and so on. In light of this rising trend and continuing developments in the law concerning attendance management, Harris partner Adriana Wills will address key issues in our seminar, including how to:

  • Implement an attendance management program
  • Identify and distinguish between culpable and non-culpable absenteeism
  • Determine when, what and how much information can be requested from an employee, and the consequences for employees when they fail to provide information
  • Meet the employer's duty to accommodate in an attendance management context.

BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS: PAYMENT IS REQUIRED TO CONFIRM YOUR REGISTRATION. A $50 CANCELLATION FEE PER PERSON WILL BE CHARGED IF YOU CANCEL YOUR REGISTRATION LESS THAN 5 BUSINESS DAYS BEFORE THE EVENT. A REFUND WILL NOT BE ISSUED IF YOU DO NOT ADVISE US OF YOUR CANCELLATION.
