Specially designed for union and management representatives and human resource professionals, as well as lawyers, our conferences provide comprehensive updates on the latest trends and case law in workplace law and labour relations delivered by leading labour lawyers and subject matter experts. Optional workshops accompanying each conference provide the opportunity to explore key topics in more depth with a smaller group led by three experts. Conference attendees receive comprehensive materials that can prove invaluable for later research as well as concise overviews of recent developments in the areas of law covered by the conference.

virtual programs/events


Presented in conjunction with institutions renowned for training and educating Canada’s labour relations leaders, our Professional Learning Programs provide labour relations professionals with the critical skills and knowledge necessary to be effective in this ever-changing field.

Live Webinars | Video & MP3 | Bundle


The timely and insightful workplace law updates and overviews that you have come to expect from our audio conferences have moved to a webinar format. The visual element will provide a more engaging experience for participants joining from their homes and offices across Canada. Participants who prefer the audio format will still be able to purchase MP3 recordings after the live webinars or dial-in to live sessions via phone. As with our previous audio conferences, these webinars will provide an opportunity to join labour lawyers and subject matter experts discussing contentious, emerging, and perennially important issues in labour, employment, and human rights law.

virtual event


It is generally accepted that employers must request no more employee personal health information than is necessary for legitimate purposes such as administering sick leave or disability benefits, providing accommodation under human rights legislation, or ensuring workplace health and safety. However, the application of this principle to specific cases generates endless controversy because employers, employees, health care providers, and unions often each have their own ideas of what is “reasonable.” This session is designed to provide a common framework that will enable workplace parties to balance employees’ privacy rights with employers’ needs for employee personal health information.
