Event Description

Dismissing employees is one of the toughest jobs an employer faces, so it’s essential to learn to manage terminations properly. HR professionals are the ones on the front lines that have to deal not only with the legal aspects of terminations, but also with the practical aspects of letting someone go. Make sure you have all the information you need to deal with this challenging part of HR’s responsibilities.


This breakfast presentation will explore the following topics:


• Employee misconduct and “just cause”

• The investigation

• Without cause: What do I owe?

• ESA vs Common Law in the construction industry

• Human rights and termination decisions

• The termination offer/termination meeting


Presenter: Craig Munroe LL.B. is a partner in Heenan Blaikie's Vancouver office, practising in their Labour and Public Policy groups. Mr. Munroe represents and advises public and private clients facing labour relations and employment issues. In addition to providing management training and ongoing advice as issues arise, Mr. Munroe regularly appears before various courts and tribunals including the British Columbia Labour Relations Board, the Canada Industrial Relations Board, grievance arbitration panels, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, and the provincial and federal courts.
