Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Using drones as part of your business is a milestone. From a legal perspective, the classification of drone operators hired by your business matters – are they independent contractors or employees? Generally, a business has greater obligations to an employee than an independent contractor.

On May 25, 2018, we will be presenting at the Dentons’ Labour, Employment and Pensions group seminar on the legal and financial implications of classifying a drone operator as an independent contractor or an employee of your business.

You are invited to join us at this highly-anticipated and complimentary half-day seminar on emerging workplace and human resources issues. In addition to the talk on the employment law issues at play when working with drone operators, other employment law topics to be canvassed at the seminar are:

  • Workplace investigations: Lessons learned since Bill 132, presented by Meaghen Russell and Pamela Chan Ebejer
  • Hot topics from the recent amendments to the Employment Standards Act, 2000, presented by Matthew Curtis
  • Human rights case law update, presented by Andy Pushalik and
