Grand Valley: 06.19.19 - HR After #Me Too

The #MeToo movement was one of the most significant wake-up calls for workplaces in decades.  Once the clouds of guilt and shame began to lift, workers from all walks began to feel more comfortable sharing their stories of mistreatment, even if it was just an admission that it had happened to them, too. Yet a few years down the road, employment lawyers are trying to figure out what happens next?  Will those accused of harassment or assault ever be able to safely re-integrate into a workplace?  What obligations might an employer have when hiring someone with a checkered past while still striving to keep their employees safe?  Is there a way to truly ensure best behavior from troublesome individuals?  Join Stuart Rudner as he explores some of the complex issues that have arisen out of the aftermath of the #metoo movement. 

About the Speaker: Stuart Rudner


Stuart is the founder of Rudner Law, a firm based in York Region specializing in Employment Law (or HR Law, as it is often called). They work with business owners, HR Professionals, in-house counsel, and anyone else tasked with looking after HR in the organization. He and his team know that you don’t have "employment law issues"; you have business decisions to make. And you need to make informed decisions. That’s where they come in. They can explain how the law applies to your situation, discuss the options and strategies available to you, and the pros and cons of each. You can then take all of that into account, along with the business and other factors, and decide what makes sense for your organization. Stuart practices as counsel to both employers and employees, and also as Mediator in Employment Law Matters.
