Notice of Proposed By-law Changes for AGM

Submitted by: Tracy Scanks

(Show News Item)

As approved by the CACE Board of Directors, proposed by-law changes are as enclosed (copy-tracked) with a Motion to adopt the changes to be presented at the Annual General Meeting on September 14, 2017, as follows:

 As directed and approved by the Board, the Executive recommends changes to the by-laws as enclosed and summarized as below:

 5.01       the Board shall be made up of the president and 17 other directors

5.02       (a)          the president is elected at the AGM

               (b)          the other officers are also elected at the AGM

               (c)           the traditional line of succession for executive positions is incorporated

7             “housekeeping” changes to correspond with the changes in section 5

The two key aspects of the changes are (1) to “free-up” the President so that he or she does not have duties as a director and another director may be elected for that jurisdiction – the Board would therefore increase from 17 to 18 - and (2) to bring the by-laws into line with the traditional practice of nominating other officers as part of the slate presented by the Nominating Committee at the AGM in accordance with a traditional line of succession.

 These are modest changes that are designed to lessen some of the burden on the President and codify existing practices. Please click here for a copy of the proposed changes to be presented at our AGM.

CACE Privacy Social Media Policy Webinar

CACE Privacy Webinar
The Goldmine and Minefield: Social Media use in the workplace

Date: May 11, 2017

Time: 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm EST

Cost: Complimentary to all Current CACE Members
(Firms will be limited to one or two computer links per firm as we are limited to 100 links)

Social media is proving to be a double-edged sword: companies are looking for opportunities to engage with their communities and stakeholders, while it is also a serious source of mischief in the workplace.

The CACE Privacy Committee has authored a model, annotated social media policy for members which is designed to promote positive social media use. As employees live more of their lives online, it is inevitable that workplace issues will find their way into this public arena. This is often to the detriment of the employer.

The policy and the webinar will address the full range of issues presented by social media, including 

  • Who is subject to the policy?
  • Who is authorized to represent the employer in public via social media?
  • Who controls company accounts?
  • What are the boundaries of use of social media?
  • Can – and how – can employees use social media to be ambassadors for the company?
  • How to educate employees in responsible use of social media and to lay a foundation for effective discipline if boundaries are crossed, whether in the physical workplace or outside of company time?

 
Participants will be provided with a copy of the annotated, model policy and will engage in a thoughtful discussion with David Fraser, internet and privacy lawyer with McInnes Cooper, and Vicki Giles, partner with McLennan Ross. 

To register, please click on the registration link below or copy and paste it into your browser https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/978534944223482115 Please note that we have a limited number of computer links for this webinar, so we encourage you to sign up early to avoid disappointment.

CACE Corporate Counsel "Accomodation & Undue Hardship since Hydro Quebec" Webinar

Submitted by: Tracy Scanks

(Show News Item)

CACE Corporate Counsel Webinar
ACCOMODATION AND UNDUE HARDSHIP SINCE HYDRO QUEBEC

Date: June 2, 2016
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EST
Cost: Complimentary to all Corporate Counsel CACE Members

Presented by leading practitioner Bill Hlibchuk, Norton Rose Fulbright Canada LLP, with question and answer period chaired by Mark Cresthol, Accenture and Mireille Bergeron, Bell Canada.

In 2008, the Supreme Court of Canada made important clarifications on the concepts of accommodation and undue hardship, which at the time were helpful for corporate counsel in their management of disability accommodation cases. We learned from the Court that the test for undue hardship was not whether it is “impossible” to accommodate an employee and were reminded that the purpose of the duty to accommodate is to ensure that persons who are otherwise fit to work are not unfairly excluded where working conditions can be adjusted without undue hardship to the employer.

  • How have arbitrators and human rights tribunals in Canada interpreted those directives over the past 8 years?
  • Has the apparently faulty standard of “impossibility” crept back into the discussion?
  • How has the “global assessment” of the evaluation of the employer’s duty to accommodate evolved since Hydro Quebec?

This webinar will provide a cross-Canada update and review of the concept of accommodation and undue hardship since Hydro Quebec. It will also involve a practical discussion of what corporate counsel have learned since 2008 and the challenges to come in finding practical solutions to the ever-challenging question of “how far do we need to go.”

Mr. Hlibchuk will present for approximately 30 minutes and then have a 10–15 minutes question and answer period. Following the Q & A, Mr. Cresthol and Ms. Bergeron will help lead a private discussion with only corporate counsel, as to how best practically apply the information learned in presentation for the remaining 15 minutes of the webinar.

    Caregiving Responsibilities - for the Information of CACE Members

    Submitted by: Andrew Finlay, Chair CACE Advocacy

    (Show News Item)

    The Labour Program (of Employment and Social Development Canada) has issued a discussion paper which poses a number of questions for stakeholders intended to determine whether it would be advisable to amend Part III of the Canada Labour Code to better support employees with caregiving and similar responsibilities. To read the paper please click here.

    The deadline is now past (it was a very short window),  and only two employer associations have been able to make a submission; the Canadian Bankers Association and the Conseil du Patronat. FETCO continues to work on a submission.

    With the recent FCA decisions in Johnstone and Seeley on accommodation based on family status, this topic is even more relevant to CACE members' clients.

    CAN EMPLOYEES EXPECT PORNOGRAPHY ON A WORK COMPUTER TO BE PRIVATE?

    Submitted by: CACE Advocacy Committee

    (Show News Item)

    Toronto – In a case involving a teacher and nude sexually explicitly images of a grade 10 student, the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers (CACE) has intervened before the Supreme Court on the case, R. v. Cole, on the issue of privacy and work computers.

    “This is more than a criminal case because the Court will be asked to weigh competing employer and employee interests. It has the potential to answer some very important questions for employers who are not already regulated by privacy legislation,” said Daniel J. Michaluk, a Partner at Hicks Morley who has been retained by CACE to represent it on this matter. “Among the questions needed to be answered are; when does personal use invite a reasonable expectation of privacy? Can employer policy reduce or eliminate that expectation? And if an employee does have a reasonable expectation of privacy what rights do employers retain?”

    CACE will make representations to help the Court make a sound decision for employers that rests on a full understanding of the function and significance of a work information system. It will argue:

    • A work computer is part of a system and not a personal storage device,
    • A work information system serves a critical business function,
    • A work information system is a repository of information that must be secured, and
    • Employers need a broad and clear right of access to information on their system.

    “Canadian employers, large and small, are routinely faced with the question of privacy as it relates to computers that are part of the employer’s networks but are used by employees,” said Andrew Finlay, Chair of CACE’s Advocacy Committee. “We are hopeful that this case will ensure employers have continued access to the information they need and clarify expectations for the many employees who use work computers and electronic devices for personal purposes.”

    Dear Madam:

    On behalf of the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers (“CACE”), we appreciate the opportunity to make submissions to the Canadian Standards Association and Bureau de normalization du Quebec in response to the Draft Standard on Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace (the “Draft Standard”).

    CACE is an association comprised of Lawyers, including senior partners, from every major Canadian law firm acting for management in labour and employment matters, in all jurisdictions. Membership also includes lawyers from a cross section of Canadian businesses who practice employment and labour law. CACE provides a forum for counsel to share information and express their views on matters of importance. It is estimated that collectively, CACE members represent the majority of employers in Canada. CACE has been in existence for over ten years.

    The CACE membership represents employers in legal matters, but CACE is not a lobby group on behalf of any industry or group. CACE members’ expertise and collective experience provide a unique perspective for commenting on the Draft Standard proposed by the CSA. As lawyers, we have the benefit of expertise which we believe is relevant to the issues addressed in the Draft Standard. Therefore our submissions focus on the intersection of the Draft Standard with Canadian law and an employer’s perspective on some of the standard’s provisions.

    We welcome any questions or comments, and will make ourselves available for further discussion on this very important issue.

    Guy Tremblay
    President of CACE

    Battlefield

    Located on the North side of the property lies the imposing Battlefield course. Douglas Carrick has managed to create a truly unique course.

    The Battlefield course boast a decided links look and a mixture of holes that allows golfers to experience the generous rolling fairways and greens, however also offers a mixture of fairways bound by dense forest and brush.

    With bunkers that look like they developed during the war of 1812, molded from bombs exploding on Carrick’s Battlefield fairways before being filled with sand like giant divots, this course is sure to provide some interesting shots. On the other hand, even with the deep bunkers Douglas Carrick has designed fairways that sweep across a gently contoured lakes-and-meadow countryside giving the golfer some breathing room.

    Carrick’s design of a 19-acre man made lake that boarders both the 9th and 18th hole is breathtaking from any angle. With the nearby mist of the Falls and water on 6 other holes, Battlefields ponds have claimed their share of stray balls.
    With the privilege of playing host to the 2004 BMO Financial Group Canadian Women’s Open, Battlefield won international praise from the worlds finest women’s golfers.

    With a yardage, featuring four sets of tees, that stretch from 6271 (white) to 7309 (gold), it is no wonder that many are challenged by this extraordinary course.

    Ussher's Creek

    Located on the South side of this majestic property, Thomas McBroom has created a true masterpiece.

    With its thick stands of deciduous trees and strong contours, Ussher’s Creek looks like a classic parkland course. The mature Carolinian forest along with a sea of bunkers are ready to snare any wayword strokes, and present an intimidating optical illusion.

    With such a strong property, Thomas McBroom set the course softly on the land with flowing lines, moderately sized greens with slight folds, and strategic bunkering to create targets and indicate turns. As well, the base acreage allowed Thomas McBroom the rare luxury of creating a meandering course the promotes a feeling of privacy, with adjacent foursomes hidden from sight. The creek, for which the course is named, crisscrossed throughout the fairways and is weaved into nine holes providing both aesthetic enhancement and challenge. However, if this is not enough to intimidate the golfer, Ussher’s creek also host two other enormous ponds.

    This traditional classic course is not without it subtle difficulties. In a tribute to McBroom’s ability, most of the fairway bunkers are created with Ohio Sand required an accurate shot to navigate. Ussher’s Creek also provided golfers with several holes which have been created to complement the natural woodlands and border both side of the fairways for a tighter play.

    This strategically designed course boast a yardage stretching from 6185 yards (whites) to 7180 yards (gold).

    Ussher’s Creek is rapidly developing a legendary reputation.

    The Maid of the Mist is a boat tour of Niagara Falls. (The actual boats used are each named Maid of the Mist, followed by a different Roman numeral in each case.) The boat starts off at a calm part of the Niagara River, near the Rainbow Bridge, and takes its passengers past the American and Bridal Veil Falls, then into the dense mist of spray inside the curve of the Horseshoe Falls, also known as the Canadian Falls. The tour is available starting from either the Canadian or U.S.A side of the river, returning to the starting point in each case.

    The first Maid of the Mist was launched in 1846 as a ferry service between the Canadian and American sides, pre-dating by two years the construction of the first Niagara Falls Suspension Bridge at the site. However, with the opening of the suspension bridge, the ferry service lost business, and by 1854, became a tourist attraction instead with the launch of a more luxurious boat. The current captain of the Maid of the Mist is Captain Mark Keith of St. Catharines, Ontario.

    Dear Colleagues,

    We are in the process of preparing submissions in response to HRSDC’s call for submissions regarding its recently released discussion paper on Part III of the Canada Labour Code.

    If you would like to participate in developing CACE’s submissions on the various issues raised in the discussion paper, please advise me as soon as possible. For your convenience I attach a link to the discussion paper. Areas in respect of which we would appreciate your input include, notably. the structure of whatever administrative tribunal should be charged with deciding cases under Part III. Professor Arthurs recommended more serious cases be sent to the CIRB and the less serious ones be dealt with by a separate tribunal, that would be created and charged with the roles currently handled by referees and adjudicators under Part III of the Code.

    Thank you. I hope to hear from many of you.

    Report on CACE's presentation to the Standing Committee on Agencies

    Submitted by: CACE Legislation and Law Reform Committe

    (Show News Item)

    CACE was invited to present to the Standing Committee on Agencies at the Ontario Legislature on February 9, 2009.  Our submissions covered five broad areas.

    Firstly, it was recognized that in the months leading up to Bill 107 the Tribunal engaged in a consultative process that was broad, open and transparent.  It was recognized that the Tribunal undertook significant efforts to reach out to all of the stakeholders in designing its processes.

    Secondly, it was noted that there are a number of housekeeping issues that need to be undertaken, and that at times there is lack of clarity around some of the procedural issues at the Tribunal.  It was clear that our members had concerns about the mistakes made regarding some of the process issues, including deadlines and the various paper requirements of the Tribunal.  However, it was also noted that while there are significant housekeeping issues, the Tribunal is making sincere efforts to address them.  The Tribunal is regarded as providing "good customer service", and it is our experience that the Tribunal generally errs on the side of allowing extensions and is open to dialogue in fixing the mistakes that have been made.

    Thirdly, there was an appreciation for the flexible processes and the speed with which the new Tribunal is handling and streamlining cases.  Respondents have indicated that so far this model is far preferable to the old Commission model with its inordinate delays.

    In addition to the above comments, we outlined two main areas of concern raised by our members.

    Firstly, there is widespread concern about a lack of an appropriate screening mechanism to screen out frivolous complaints.  It is not clear how rigorously the Tribunal is screening out complaints that are not "within jurisdiction".  Our members expressed frustration about an inability to have vexatious matters "tossed out" before being required to file a full Response on the merits.

    Secondly, and related to this, is the inability of Respondents to claim costs where an Application has been dismissed, or at least in cases which are frivolous and vexatious and in which significant time, resources and money have been expended to defend against a matter that should not have been allowed to proceed.  The absence of some kind of sanction for vexatious applications is a concern for the Respondent community.

    Dear Minister Sorbara:

    Re: Labour Relations and the Ontario Health Premium

    We are writing to you in our capacity as directors of the Canadian Association of Counsel to Employers (CACE). CACE is a newlyincorporated association of practicing lawyers who devote the majority of their time to the representation of employers in labour and employment law matters. CACE is designed to provide a forum for such counsel to share information and to provide them with a vehicle to express their views on matters of importance. CACE's current membership is well in excess of 200 lawyers, who, indeed, collectively represent most of the employers in this country.

    The purpose of this letter is to express our Ontario members' concerns and perspective with respect to the wording of Bill 106 and its impact upon labour relations in the province.

    As you are doubtless well aware, the question of whether the cost of the new Ontario Health Premium is to be borne by unionized employers is currently a hotly-contested issue. We refer specifically in this regard to those collective agreements which provide for employer payment of Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) “premiums”. This sort of language is contained in very many collective agreements in the province – including, ironically, many agreements in the health care sector. These types of clauses were negotiated years ago, when Ontario required individuals to pay monthly, fixed OHIP premiums. Many employers simply left such language in their agreements following 1990 when OHIP premiums were abolished. Many unions are now invoking such language to claim reimbursement for the new tax created by Bill 106. The use of both of the words “premium” and “tax” in Bill 106 has resulted in confusion regarding whether the new Ontario Health Premium is indeed a “premium” as contemplated by these collective agreements.

    It is our suggestion that this confusion can be easily resolved by using consistent language throughout Bill 106. Faced with the choice between “premium” and “tax”, the removal of all references to “premium” is the option which best adheres to the stated intention of your government – namely, that the Ontario Health Premium is a tax to be paid by individuals.

    A brief history of this matter lends support to the necessity for change and the simplicity of the answer suggested. To begin, the first mention of this issue occurred not during the debates on Bill 106, but during the Committee hearings on Bill 83. There, Ms. Tasha Kheiriddin of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation stated: “In other words, there’s a great degree of uncertainty attached to the payment of this new tax. In a labour relations context, uncertainty is never a good thing.” Similar sentiments were expressed by both the Ontario Federation of Labour and the Association of Municipalities of Ontario.

    Shortly thereafter, you confirmed the government’s intention on this point. On June 24, 2004, in response to questions posed by Mr. Jim Flaherty in the legislature, you are quoted as having stated: “…this premium does not come within the four corners of those pre-existing collective agreements.”

    Despite this stated intention, a number of grievances were filed once employers began to deduct the prescribed amounts from the paycheques of their employees. To date, there have been four decisions handed down by Ontario arbitrators in response: one decision found the employer liable to pay the Ontario Health Premium on behalf of its employees (the award of Arbitrator Barrett); the other three decisions found the employer not liable, based upon the wording of the respective collective agreements (the awards of: Arbitrator Teplitsky; Arbitrator Shime; and Arbitrator Tims). A key issue for the Arbitrators was the consideration of whether the Ontario Health Premium is a “premium” or a “tax”.

    A number of other arbitrations remain pending on this matter in the province; they affect tens of thousands employees.

    In response to the release of contradictory decisions, both you and Premier McGuinty reiterated that it is not the government’s intention that the cost of the Ontario Health Premium be borne by employers under the pre-existing collective agreement language that made reference to the long abolished OHIP premiums. In particular, the Premier is quoted as having said the following in the legislature on October 27, 2004: “If, at some point in time, we need to do something to inject further clarity into this matter, then we will, but our intention has always been that this should be paid by taxpayers.”

    We suggest that the time to inject such clarity is now, while Bill 106 travels through the legislative process. The continued litigation on this point is unnecessary, and may well lead to further contradictory decisions, with consequent costs to employers, including employers in the health care sector. The continued expense of arbitral and judicial resources is unnecessary. And the continued uncertainty in the labour relations environment is unnecessary and unhealthy.

    The stated intention of your government is clear; and clear and unambiguous effect can be given this intention by removing all uses of the word “premium” from Bill 106. Because this would not be a substantive amendment to the Bill, our suggestion is also procedurally simple. We urge you to make this simple housekeeping amendment to Bill 106 to remove the current uncertainty and put an end to the ongoing litigation which our members' clients are facing.

    Yours very truly,
