Kathryn A. Raymond Q.C. will join a panel discussing the Modern Federal Labour Standards

Posted in: News

On May 21, 2020, Kathryn A. Raymond Q.C., Arb., Med. will be participating in a Lancaster House audio conference, Modern Federal Labour Standards: An update on recent and recommended changes. She will join a panel that will provide updates on the status of recent amendments to legislation affecting federally regulated workplaces, discuss the Expert Panel’s report, and identify what changes lie ahead for unions and employers in the federally regulated public and private sectors.

For more information on this audio conference or to register, please visit Lancaster House’s website.

Kathryn arbitrates and mediates workplace disputes in the public and private sectors. She also practices employment and administrative law representing both employers and employees.

Kathryn was appointed to the Expert Panel on Modern Federal Labour Standards by the federal Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour. The purpose of the Panel was to provide independent advice to the Government of Canada on five major issues related to federal labour standards and our changing work life in Canada. The issues addressed were protections for workers in non-standard work, the federal minimum wage, access to benefits and portability between employers, disconnecting from work e-communications outside of work hours, and a collective voice for non-unionized employees. The Panel conducted research and engaged in consultations with stakeholders and experts across Canada to provide evidence-based advice related to the changing nature of work. In December 2019, the report was released, containing 39 recommendations. To read the Report, click here.
