Ep. 72 Exploring Workers’ Rights and Employer Challenges under the Shifting Nature of Work

New ways of work - exploitative or flexible? Episode 72, The Nancy Duffy Show

“Everything now is expanding… We’re in a brave new world in terms of these new elements coming into focus that are challenging employees, employers, independent contractors and the courts”
– Shelley Brown

Show Notes

Welcome to episode 72 It’s the week after Canada’s 43rd national election and I’m excited to be back! One of the subjects we did not hear all that much about during the Canadian election debates was about the changing nature of work – and what those changes will mean to current and new employees entering the workforce. 

During this episode, we talk with employment lawyer, Shelley Brown, about the relationship between workers (direct employees and those on contract) and the companies they work for. Listen in as we discuss the perils of out-of-date work contracts in the face of the ever-changing social and workplace landscapes. We’ll dive into matters regarding rights, privacy, and the latest concerns about cannabis.
