Speaker: Stéphane Fillion
About the Webinar
During this webinar, we will examine the general principles surrounding the obligation of employees to provide the work performance their employer are entitled to expect and see how time theft leads to a violation of this obligation. We will see how tribunals compare theft and time theft and the differences that are often drawn between them.
To illustrate this, we will review recent cases dealing with time theft, often dealing with the use of electronic devices like phones, computers, tablets and see how an employer can justify terminating an employee for this reason. We will finally explore tools available to employers to investigate these types of cases like cameras, GPS systems, access cards and so on.
Finally, we will provide recommendations on how to best address these issues and stop the problem at the source.
