Labour and Employment Law: Legal Updates for Canadian Employers

CPD for Lawyers: 1 Substantive Hour, CPD for HRPA and CHRP Members: 1 Hour


There have been several updates to Canadian labour and employment law in 2024. These changes reflect a trend towards enhancing transparency and fairness within the workplace. The amendments encompass a variety of areas, including but not limited to, pay transparency, modern slavery legislation, temporary help agency regulations and anti-competitive practices such as wage-fixing and no-poaching agreements. In addition, a series of recent court decisions have changed the legal landscape on termination clauses in employment agreements.

It is imperative for Canadian employers to stay abreast of these legal developments. Understanding and implementing these updates will not only ensure legal compliance, but will also contribute to building a more transparent, fair and competitive business environment.
