Blakes 2021 Canada/U.S. Legal Update Seminar Series: Employment and Labour

There are many nuances and key differences between Canadian and U.S. employment law, including varying approaches to COVID-19 policies. Whether it’s employment contracts, terms and conditions of employment or defining the working relationship, it’s important for U.S. businesses to understand these variances when dealing with clients or subsidiaries in Canada.
Join members of our Employment & Labour group as we discuss Canadian employment law and how it can impact cross-border business.

  • Should you start with an employment contract?

  • Key employment compliance issues, including those related to COVID-19

  • If expanding into Canada, should you engage an independent contractor or hire an employee?

  • Employment law implications for M&A transactions
