  • How can legal practitioners service clients needs effectively during the pandemic crisis
  • Update on the latest laws and regulatory changes from the federal, provincial and municipal governments
  • How does the Employment Standards Act impact client obligations?

  • Reducing workforces during and after a pandemic
  • Reviewing client responsibility for ensuring the mental health and wellbeing of their workforce
