Recently, I made a major life change. After having been at my firm, Norton Rose Canada, for a number of years, I accepted an offer to become senior counsel, employee relations, for a major Canadian retailer. My focus is going from a mostly Quebec-based practice, to one with Canada-wide scope.
In the same vein, I’ve decided to change the focus of the blog I created (the Quebec Labour Law Blog) to give it a national and international scope. I have the benefit now of having collaborators from ex-colleagues from across the Norton Rose Group (Australia, South Africa, Germany, France, etc.) Indeed, labour issues are no longer confined to provinces or states. Unions, governments and employers all now engage in sophisticated labour strategies that cross borders and continents.
I believe that the newest iteration of the blog (co-edited with my friend Genevieve Lay, also a contributor to this site), now known as the International Employment and Labour Law Blog, will help provide a forum for both employees, employers, HR professionals and employment and labour lawyers to learn and discuss about transnational issues and pick up on new trends.
Please have a look and let us know what you think!
