Managing Terminations: A Practical Overview and Employment Law Update

Lorenzo Lisi, Fiona Brown, Michael F. Horvat and Meghan A. Cowan

Ending an employment relationship is often the last thing employers want to think about. However, due to a slowdown in work, a restructuring, performance issues, misconduct or lack of “fit” within the organization, sometimes an employment relationship has to come to an end. Managing the process is very important as a termination has a significant impact on the employee, the business and, at times, the morale in the workplace.

Join Aird & Berlis workplace law experts as they provide practical tips on how to handle terminations and an update on the current state of employment law in Ontario.
