Broad legislative reform measures in Ontario and Alberta have highlighted the rapid evolution of workplace law, driven by the increase in "precarious employment" and the "gig economy." The game and the stakes are changing rapidly, and the mantra of the past is becoming a distant echo. Efforts to reduce costs by using temporary workers, contract workers, or other non-traditional relationships may not be effective any more. Make sure you're listening to the right sounds by attending this seminar.
