2018 Year in Review: Atlantic Canada Labour & Employment Law Developments
We can all make 2019 a success by building on the year that was. For employers, 2018 was a year of many notable developments in labour and employment law across the country. We saw Ontario enact significant legislative changes only to roll many of them back following a turnover in government; the federal government propose significant changes to its own legislation; the #metoo movement march forward; and the legalization of cannabis put its workplace impact in the spotlight.
Atlantic Canada experienced a number of its own legal developments that regional employers should be aware of as they plan for the year ahead.
