Date: October 26, 2010
Location: 60 minute webinar on the Human Resources Professional Association website
Host: Human Resources Professional Association
In its 2008 decision in Evans v. Teamsters Local Union No. 31, the Supreme Court of Canada stated that in the context of a constructive dismissal, an employee may be required to mitigate her damages by continuing to work with the terminating employer. Ron Minken spoke in a national webinar and discussed how constructive dismissal has been altered since the decision, how it is now being viewed by the courts, and whether or not it has rendered constructive dismissal dead. Human resources professionals received tips and insights on what employers can do to prevent against possible claims of constructive dismissal.
