Canada: Dealing with a Global Workforce across Multiple Jurisdictions

Progressively, our BC employers are looking abroad to attract international talent into their workforces. Whether those employees are newly hired or are transferred from global affiliates or parent companies, commonplace problems arise when an employer’s workforce becomes global in scope.

Gowling WLG employment and labour law attorneys delved into jurisdictional issues that arise in managing personnel from distinctive countries, and across multiple provinces.

On November 17, 2016, the Gowling WLG employment and labour legal team presented a number of the most common and pressing issues you are likely to be challenged with, including:

  • Hiring Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs): Who is eligible, and how long can you employ them?
  • Drafting Employment Agreements for Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) and workers who function in multiple jurisdictions.
  • What happens when a dispute arises with either a TFW or operating in a multi-jurisdictional setting?
  • Best practices for handling terminations.

The video below highlights these key points, as well as other issues that can arise splendidly, and I wish to share it with you now. Please click on the image below, which directly links you to this presentation.

Specifically, the following topics are addressed from a legal perspective:

  • Medical Marijuana in the Workplace
  • Changing language in your Bonus Plans
  • Hiring a Foreign Worker
  • Managing your Global Workforce
