Overview

New coverage for chronic mental stress under the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act, 1997 will now apply to cases of workplace harassment. This change in legislation will impact existing legal practice relating to workplace investigations, dispute resolution, and litigation.

Join our stellar faculty as we tackle this important topic from a unique perspective, focusing on the exclusive jurisdiction of the WSIB over injuries flowing from workplace harassment, new considerations for complaints and investigations, and strategic litigation planning when pursuing a remedy or defending a claim. You will also gain practical tips on how to litigate strategically, directly from experienced counsel.
