FREE webinar: Disciplining Outside-of-Work Misconduct: From Inappropriate Social Posts to Illegal Protests

April 5, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Presenter: Bettina Xue Griffin – Senior Legal Research Associate, Blue J
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 behavior 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 labor and employment HR professionals
Format: Live Online – Zoom Webinar
All login information will be sent to you via email the day prior to the session. Please check your junk/spam folder if it has not come through to your in-box.
Time: 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm – NST
