In the current business environment, employers are confronted with the need to restructure
their workforces in order to reduce labour costs. Careful planning and an understanding of
the complex web of legal requirements is required in order to avoid triggering unnecessary costs and liabilities that, if not avoided, will eat up the cost savings.

Today’s employer and employees have high expectations of its advisors. As a result, the
in-house human resources professionals, union representatives and outside experts must
deliver advice that is timely, accurate and practical. It is important to understand the different rules of engagement for managing restructuring and discharges in union workplaces, Public Service and private sector.

Answers won’t come from sitting in your office and waiting for them to arrive via emails
or blog posts (much less a tweet). Clues to the right answers for your company will arrive
in an “aha” moment while listening to people with new ideas, and while asking them the
tough questions. It will come from meeting your colleagues and competitors at focused
conferences and debating ideas, facts and figures and understanding how evolving legal
decisions may affect your current practices.
