ABOUT THE WEBINAR

This session will look at the concept of the “gig economy” and review recent developments in Canada as adjudicators and legislators try to grapple with how to fit this economy into our current legal frameworks.

Key takeaways include:

  • Leading jurisprudence addressing the “gig workers”
  • How disputes are being adjudicated: courts vs. arbitration;
