CACE Human Rights Webinar
The Art of the Release - Tips for Drafting Human Rights Releases 

Date: February 28, 2019
Time: 12:00 pm to 1:15 pm EDT
Cost: Complimentary to all current CACE Members 
(Firms will be limited to one or two computer links per firm as we are limited to 100 links)

Presented by, Erin Porter, Fasken Martineau LLP, and Timothy Mitchell, McLennan Ross LLP and Rhonda Grintuch, Fasken Martineau LLP.

Most terminations never result in a civil claim or human rights application because employers will typically ask a terminated employee to sign a release as a condition of receiving a severance package. Even if a claim is filed, the majority of cases settle long before opening statements are ever uttered. For these reasons, the art of skillfully crafting a release is an essential skill all labour and employment lawyers should have in their arsenal. A carefully worded release will not only prevent future litigation but it can also ensure confidentiality and impose consequences on disgruntled employees who take to social media to disparage their former employers.

This webinar will be a high level discussion on how various human rights tribunals and courts have examined releases. The webinar will discuss recent case law in an interesting and engaging way, and provide practical advice in this area. The issues that will be discussed include:

• The release as a bar to a claim;

• Enforceability of confidentiality and non-disparagement clauses;

• Enforceability of releases signed by Unions on behalf of employees;

• Threshold for duress; and

• The impact of #MeToo
