Tips For Employers Providing Employment Statements To Employees

HRReporter referenced a blog post written by Toronto Managing Partner Mitch Frazer, Partner Brad Tartick, and Associate Patrick Denroche in an article discussing a new amendment to the Canada Labour Code. The authors wrote, "There will inevitably be overlap between the content of an employee’s mandatory employment statement and an employee’s employment contract."

They continued, "Although we are unaware of any instances to date, it is conceivable that an employee may attempt to rely on an inconsistency between an employment statement and their employment contract to make a claim against their employer, such as for additional compensation or benefits or lesser duties and responsibilities. Relatedly, employers need to ensure that the employment statements align with their applicable workplace policies and practices and job postings.”
