Guest Speaker

Pam Costanzo is a lawyer at Young Anderson where she practices exclusively in the areas of labour, employment and human rights. Pam is currently a Member-at-Large of the section.


Courts, arbitrators, and human rights tribunals have recently considered the duty to investigate, and the duty of procedural fairness, in investigations in several recent decisions. This presentation summarized some of those decisions and considered the consequences that could flow from a failure to investigate or from a flawed investigation, as well as practical considerations and approaches for the Investigator.


Duration of meeting was 1.5 hours. Of this, 1.5 hours can be counted towards CPD.
