Blue J Legal
From Freedom Convoy protests to conspiracy theory posts on social media, concerns are growing among employers about their employees’ behaviour outside of work. The big question is: At what point does employee conduct cross a line such that an employer is justified in imposing some form of discipline or terminating the employment relationship? This question is hard to answer considering that concerning behaviour typically occurs outside of work hours and off-site.

This webinar examines the difficult question in the context of unionized employees by teaching the progressive discipline framework and analyzing recent arbitration and court decisions on similar issues. Expect practical takeaways, like how leveraging technology helps practitioners answer these difficult issues.

In this presentation, you will learn:
  • The types of actions that can be taken by employers
  • Real-world examples of terminations and suspensions that were upheld
  • Practical insights on what the courts and arbitrators say about this issue
  • How practitioners can leverage technology to gain insights into these complex issues

Who should attend:
  • Lawyers and legal experts in the areas of labour and employment HR professionals.
