Toronto: 06.17.19 ENG– Before you sign your next Employment Contact...Consider this

Finished the interviews – received the job offer – now you must sign the contract! Join Employment Lawyer and Mediator Stuart Rudner as he shows you what is important in a contract and what to watch out for.  

He will take you through the specifics to consider when reviewing a job offer, including job duties, compensation, hours, flexibility, pension plans and the work environment.  Equally as important, he will tell you what to beware of, and how seemingly innocuous clauses can dramatically impact your rights.

Speaker bio(s)
Main Speaker Stuart Rudner

Stuart Rudner, Lawyer

I am not one of those lawyers that is ideologically married to one side. While many individuals have their rights trampled on, I have also seen employees take advantage of those same rights to the detriment of their employer. I realize that there is good and bad in every group, and that is why my firm works with both employers and employees. We are able to see every situation from both sides.

Since I have also been trained in Alternative Dispute Resolution techniques and act as a Mediator in Employment matters, I am able to see things from a third side: that of a neutral third party, working with those involved to achieve a reasonable resolution to their issues.

In 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019, I was selected by my peers for inclusion in ‘The Best Lawyers in Canada’ in the area of Employment Law. I am routinely named in Canadian HR Reporter’s Employment Lawyers Directory (a comprehensive directory of the top employment law and immigration law practitioners in Canada) and have also been recognized as one of Canada’s top Legal Social Media Influencers. In October 2018, I was recognized as the only Legal Influencer in Canadian HR Law in the first Lexology Awards.

My firm, Rudner Law, has been nominated as one of the Top Employment & Labour Boutiques in Canadian HR Reporter Readers’ Choice Awards for 2018. My previous firm was selected as one of the top three Employment Law firms in 2016 and 2017, the first two years these awards were given out.

I chair and teach at conferences, and I am the founding Program Director of Osgoode Professional Development’s HR Law for HR Professionals course and the co-founding Program Director of their Advanced HR Law for HR Professionals course.
