2013 California HR Conference

The Professionals in Human Resources Association is hosting the annual California HR Conference from August 26 to 28, 2013 at the Anaheim Convention Centre in Anaheim, California.

Stephen Bird has been invited to be a presenter at the Conference and will be a member of the Global Employment Strategy discussion panel.

Stephen’s program will focus on the following unique aspects of Canadian employment law:

  • Jurisdiction over labour and employment law matters: Which laws apply – federal or provincial? What are the differences between the various Canadian jurisdictions?
  • Obligations when terminating employment: The different considerations applicable to unionized and non-unionized staff, and the common law concept of “reasonable notice”.
  • Drug testing and privacy issues: The Canadian approach – what constitutes a reasonable intrusion into an employee’s private life? Can an employer conduct covert surveillance or monitor Internet use?
  • Employee benefits and insurance: What is provided publicly, and what must an employer cover?

Bird Richard has a limited number of complimentary one-day passes (valuing $5,994) to be conferred to clients of the Firm. One day pass attendees can upgrade their registrations to 2 days for $150 or 3 days for $300. Please be advised that the registration for the Conference closes on August 16, 2013.
