Balancing Safety with Other Legal Obligations in Today’s Workplace

You don’t want to miss this! Listen to practical advice on important safety issue management.

In order to maintain a safe workplace and show due diligence, sometimes employees may need to be disciplined when they break safety rules.  When should that discipline for a safety infraction mean termination of employment?  What happens if an employer gets it wrong and terminates when they shouldn’t? What happens when there are human rights issues raised as the reason a safety rule can’t be followed? This session will provide practical advice on when to discipline, when to terminate, and how to do so in such a way as to limit liability for wrongful terminations, all while balancing human rights obligations.

What knowledge will I gain?

  • When and how to apply the principles of progressive discipline
  • How to recognize human rights issues and how to balance human rights with safety
  • How to discipline employees and terminate employees legally

Occupational Health and Safety Professionals, Human Resource Professionals, Disability Management Professionals, Senior and General Managers, Supervisors
