Can Off Duty Conduct Impact the Employment Relationship?

Canadian Employment & Labour Conference 2011 - Vancouver


This presentation discusses whether off duty conduct can impact the employment relationship.  Generally, an employer has no authority over what employees do outside of the workplace.  However, there comes a point where off duty conduct may constitute cause for dismissal and this involves balancing competing interests.

Presented at the Davis LLP 2011 Canadian Employment & Labour Conference in Vancouver, October 2011.
