With amendments to Federal privacy legislation on the horizon and COVID-19-related issues continuing to percolate, workplace privacy and confidentiality have emerged as hot topics in 2021. Join us as we discuss:
Bill C-11 (the Digital Charter Implementation Act) and how it may impact your workplace.
Is private-sector privacy legislation coming to Ontario (similar to some other provinces)?
Hiring, Firing and Surveillance
Privacy and the hiring process.
Employee breach of privacy or confidentiality – when is this just cause for termination?
Surveillance (inside and outside of the workplace) – when is it permissible?
The tort of “intrusion upon seclusion” – how has it been applied to the workplace; how might that change in the future?
Screening, test results and vaccination status – what is an employer entitled to know?
When is it permissible to disclose COVID-19-related personal and/or medical information (g., to a co-worker, client, medical officer, etc.); how to safeguard this information.
Key components of an effective and compliant policy.
