    Annotated Employment Agreement Clauses 2023

    Tuesday, February 28, 2023, 1:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m. 
    LSO Webinar (View this webcast-only program from your home or office computer)

    Co-Chairs:
    Hermie Abraham, Advocation Professional Corporation
    Lauren Bernardi, Bernardi Human Resources Law LLP

    Each year, this program shines a light on several different key or novel clauses, examining the impact of recent case law and legislative changes, while providing you with valuable precedent language. Our panels of experts, who represent both employees and employers, provide practical tips on drafting new contract language, including in respect of place of work, restrictive covenants, and "full time and attention" clauses.

    • What new clauses should you consider for your agreements, post-COVID? 
    • Which drafting tips can help you meet your clients' needs?
    • How have recent court decisions upheld or struck down particular agreements?
