Canadian workplaces have undergone a significant transformation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Employees are seeking more flexibility on remote work, and with that comes new HR and legal considerations for employers. It is critical that employers understand and mitigate risks both within Canada and internationally.

  • General implications of remote work or hybrid work

  • Implications of employees relocating/working outside of Canada

  • Implications of employees working in another province

  • Application of employment standards and contractual and common law obligations
