Can Off Duty Conduct Impact the Employment Relationship?

Canadian Employment & Labour Conference 2011 - Vancouver

October 19, 2011

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.
