When does a change to a term or condition of employment constitute constructive dismissal? Are short service employees receiving lengthy notice assessments? Are termination provisions enforceable?
We will also provide a step by step guide to the key provisions employers should include in employment agreements, as well as discuss when employee monitoring is permissible in light of a recent investigation report issued by the BC's information and Privacy Commissioner.
