Since the Supreme Court of Canada's seminal decision in Bhasin v. Hrynew, bad faith is routinely pleaded in employment cases. Join us to explore what good faith means in the employment context, and how Bhasin is being interpreted and applied by the lower courts and arbitrators.

How does this decision interact with the SCC's landmark decision on aggravated and punitive damages in Honda v. Keays? Our expert faculty will share valuable insights on how to distinguish between punitive, aggravated and bad faith damages, and share valuable strategies for bringing or responding to allegations of bad faith.
