Please join labour and employment law lawyers, Stephen Bird and Marie-Michèle Pellerin-Auprix of Bird Richard, for a presentation on the law governing Embassies’ relationships with their locally-engaged staff.

As many Embassies in Canada strive to mirror regional employment standards for their locally-engaged staff, this seminar will focus on how to provide comparable benefits while protecting yourself from costly litigation brought by Canadian staff, as well as a discussion on the following:

• State Immunity under Canadian law;
• minimum standards under Ontario law; and
• drafting employment contracts for locally-engaged staff.

Russell and Marie-Michèle will take you through the practical impact of these cases on your workplace and time will be allocated to encourage discussion and Q&As.

Seminar to be held on February 22, 2018 at the Shaw Centre.

8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. – Presentation with Q & A to follow

Note: registration, networking and complimentary breakfast commence at 8:00 a.m.

This seminar is complimentary, but as space is limited, please register no later than February 15, 2018.
