InBrief Fall 2008


In This Issue

LAW NOTES highlight a number of current issues: In the employment context, failure to acknowledge one’s mistakes is discussed as grounds for dismissal, and two other NOTES look at the likely rise in the cost of doing business, one resulting from a new statutory holiday and the other from judicializing the human rights complaint system. Our tax

experts discuss new options for independent contractors, and there is a NOTE about cross-border whistleblower protection; a commentary NOTE by François Tougas on abolishing the rail monopoly in Canada, and another about controversial proposed

changes to Canada’s copyright law.

There are full-length articles on a wide range of business topics including identity theft and technology, security in electronic records, and as it relates to the workplace, articles on reasonable notice, the obligation to mitigate and a different perspective on the Keays case.

There are also alerts for directors and officers and an article about corporations now being prosecuted under the Criminal Code.

In separate articles, Canadian antitrust class actions and patent law are discussed and compared to that in the U.S.
