Remote Work and Employment Law: Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic

April 7, 2022 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Over the past two years, a large majority of Quebec-based employers have had to manage a remote workforce. For these employers, how labour & employment laws apply to this mode of work still raises many questions. How can employers track the work carried out by their employees? How can they verify overtime claims? What are the issues related to the use of IT systems and equipment provided by the employer? How can the flow of confidential documents and information be controlled?

In this presentation, our speakers will discuss various issues facing employers with a remote workforce. They will also provide an overview of relevant court decisions from recent years, as well as best practices to adopt for managing employees who work remotely.

Please note that this webinar will take place in French.
