Discover Ability Presents: Wrongful Dismissal with Aird & Berlis

Join Discover Ability with Aird & Berlis, a leading Canadian law firm with a focus on all principal areas of business law, giving a 101 about Wrongful Dismissal.

How does one define Wrongful Dismissal? As businesses become more inclusive, conversations surrounding around accommodation become more pervasive. At the same time, grounds for dismissal can be more opaque.

So, what constitutes grounds for dismissal versus the need for further accommodation?

Joining Discover Ability are Lorenzo Lisi and Alex Kagan from Aird & Berlis, giving us the 101 about Wrongful Dismissal. Topics being discussed include:

  • Accommodation Requests
  • Performance Management (Re: Accommodations & Needs)
  • Demands & Statement of Claims
  • Potential Liabilities & How to Protect
  • How to Proactively Avoid Wrongful Dismissal Claims
  • What Organizations without HR functions/departments can do to manage these elements?

Date: Wednesday, April 13, 2022.
Time: 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
