What happens if you transfer employees from France to Canada? Does their employment by the Canadian subsidiary end their employment with the French subsidiary? Which country has jurisdiction over any disputes arising from the termination of employment? Can Canadian lawyers provide advice about the employee’s French employment? If you send an employee to Sierra Leone, do Ontario statutes such as the Employment Standards Act or the Occupational Health and Safety Act apply to the employee while they he or she is working in Sierra Leone?
In this session, these questions will be considered as well as the best practices to manage international transfers effectively. We will also focus on the ethics of the multi-jurisdictional practice of law, discussing the extent of mobility rights within Canada and what it means to practice “international law” from a professional conduct point of view.
