The Association of Labor Relations Agencies Presents:
Mediating Labour Disputes During the Global Pandemic

Labour and Employment Agencies responsible for mediating and adjudicating workplace disputes have had to find alternate ways of delivering their services during the COVID pandemic. These alternatives range from the extensive use of virtual mediation to adjusting in-person mediation to accommodate social distancing.

Join us for a free discussion regarding the challenges and practical implications posed by our current reality. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn about what dispute resolution agencies across Canada and the US are doing regarding mediation services. A panel will discuss the ways their agencies have adapted, what is working and responses received from their clients. Participant questions and comments during the program are encouraged.
