While Canada and the United States share very close bilateral ties, and there are many similarities in our governance and laws, there are also some very distinct and important differences that are relevant to cross-border business. One key difference exists in attracting, managing and retaining employees in Canada. Any company contemplating business north of the border should be made aware of these very significant considerations.

Panelists will cover the following topics: Canada's unique workplace laws and how they differ from the United States; the regulatory and judicial regimes which enforce Canada's employment and labor laws; practical ways to maintain a highly functioning workplace and avoid employee claims; work authorization requirements for U.S. citizens to work in Canada; and cross-border hot topics, including workplace privacy and employee monitoring, social media, tweeting and blogging, and background checks.
