Fact or Fiction: A Practical Guide to Defamation in the Workplace
With the increasing channels of communication being made available both online and offline, negative statements by employees carry a greater – and often more permanent – impact than ever before. But when do these statements rise to the level of defamation? What can employers do to protect their good name and business reputation where an employee engages in defamatory acts?
This seminar will provide an in-depth look at the current law on defamatory acts in workplace contexts in Ontario. Our expert panelists will discuss topics including:
- The different types of communication that can constitute defamation at law
- Practical implications that defamatory acts may have on business operations
- Strategies on how organizations should respond to defamatory communications by current and former employees
- Recent case law involving the litigation of defamation claims and available legal remedies
We look forward to having you at our webinar!
