Join Stuart Rudner and Brittany Taylor at the YSBEC Spring Seminar on June 14, 2017 for a discussion on the benefits of having enforceable employment agreements in place with your employees, and need to know tips for ensuring that contracts are properly constructed and entered into to provide maximum protection for your business.
Employment laws in Ontario and throughout Canada are designed to protect the rights and interests of employees. However, we work with employers to maximize their rights and flexibility while ensuring compliance and minimizing risk.
The cornerstones of the legal relationship are contracts and policies; they set out the terms of the relationship and the rules of the workplace. Having a well drafted employment agreement governing your relationship with each employee is the single most effective way to level the playing field. Simply having a well drafted termination provision that clearly sets out an employee’s entitlements on dismissal reduces the risk of employers “guessing wrong” when putting together severance packages, and can save thousands of dollars in unplanned and unpredictable costs. However, ensuring that an employment agreement is drafted with clear, unambiguous language and in compliance with the ever evolving requirements of the law, can be challenging. As a result, employers who are not aware of the pitfalls of employment agreements may end up with a contract that is not worth the paper that it is written on. At the same time, many employers hire people "on contract", or as contractors, under a mistaken view that this will reduce their obligations and labour costs.
