A New Legal Landscape for Sentencing? Court imposes “Creative Sentence” on Corporation Convicted of OHSA Offences

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

This webinar will be held on Wednesday, February 26, 2020 and will run from 12 pm to 1 pm ET (including an interactive Q&A). Unique log-in instructions will be delivered separately in advance of the program.


Description:

An Ontario Court has departed from the historic approach of imposing fines against corporations by imposing a probation order not sought by the Crown or Defence. If this approach were widely followed, it would be a gamechanger for how corporations are sentenced under the OHSA and possibly other regulatory statutes. Please join us for a complimentary HR-Law Webinar on this new development, on Wednesday February 26, 2020 from 12:00 to 1:00 pm.

Topics to be covered:

  • A review of sentencing provisions under the OHSA and the Provincial Offences Act;
  • A review of cases that have imposed creative sentences against corporations in Ontario;
  • What the new approach could mean for plea bargaining in Ontario under the OHSA;
  • Why the approach of the Ministry of Labour is critical to this issue;
  • How an Appellate Court might respond;
  • “Creative” sentencing in other jurisdictions;
  • Should “deferred prosecution agreements” be on the table?

(Presentation and comments are not legal advice.  Please contact our team should you need to retain counsel to advise)
