Off the clock but not off the hook: When to discipline for off-duty conduct

November 30 @ 12:00 pm - 12:30 pm


Supervising your employees while they’re at work is tough on its own.

Being concerned about what they do outside the office makes it even tougher.

But wait, is that really an employer’s business in the first place?

The answer? Yes, when your reputation is at stake.

Knowing how to determine if you’re at risk depends on the employee, their role and what actually happened.

Join us as OBJ’s Mike Curran learns from Emond Harnden employment lawyers Sarah Lapointe and Fabienne Lajoie what you need to know about disciplining employees for off-duty conduct.

What you’ll learn:

  • Can an employee’s off-duty conduct ever justify the imposition of discipline or even the termination of employment altogether?
  • What types of off-duty conduct might warrant the imposition of discipline or the termination of employment?
  • A contemporary example: Social media and internet postings

Who should attend:

  • Employers
  • Human resource executives
  • In-house legal teams
