Our clients work hard to meet their obligations in complicated and constantly changing legal, regulatory and economic environments. We’re here to help. That’s where our client education program, Leading Questions, comes in.
Leading Questions events address the issues that confront you and your organization. They are held regularly, and include seminars, workshops, podcasts, guest speakers, and more. We answer the questions you’ve been wondering about, as well as those you didn’t even know you had.
Many of you may recall our successful Laws & Bagels client seminars held some years ago. Those seminars addressed many legal issues of importance to our clients. Leading Questions carries on that tradition, but offers other ways to engage and learn in addition to traditional client seminars.
Since the start of the pandemic, Goldblatt Partners has been offering client seminars via Zoom, which has allowed many more of our clients to participate, including those outside the Greater Toronto area.
If you are a Goldblatt Partners client, and would like to receive registration information for Leading Questions events, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be added to our mailing list. Make sure to indicate which organization you work for.
If you’re already on our email list, all you need to do is keep an eye out for the invitations to the seminars, typically sent about 4 weeks in advance of each seminar.
Some of our recent webinars have included:
- Free Expression, Criticism and Confidentiality in Labour – We covered issues related to the legal consequences for criticism and public statements about employers or union officials, as well as trends and best practices in settlement agreement clauses for confidentiality, non-disclosure or non-disparagement
- Navigating Requests for Medical Information – We discussed how to help strike the balance between an employer’s legitimate interest in an employee’s medical information and the employee’s right to privacy.
- Rising Tides: Federal Pay Equity on the Horizon – We outlined the developments in pay equity in the federal sector and provided information to help you understand what you can expect as the deadline to develop pay equity plans approaches.
- 2022: The Year in Review – We reviewed our biggest wins and notable cases from 2022.
The webinars for Fall 2023 will start off with a COVID-19 Update on September 26th at 10 a.m. Clients can join our mailing list to find out more.
Client-specific seminars and training
We regularly speak at in-house educational events organized by our clients for their own staff and representatives. The legal issues we’ve been asked to address in recent months include: social media in the workplace; how to navigate the grievance and arbitration process; human rights issues in collective bargaining; family status discrimination; pay equity; and an update on recent arbitration cases.
We are always available to help you with your in-house seminars. If you would like us to speak at an event you have organized, or to develop a seminar, webinar, or workshop for your organization, please contact Kelly Doctor.
