Speaking Up at Work: A Workplace Democracy Policy Debate

When and Where

Friday, September 02, 2022 11:00 am to 12:00 pm


 After a civic lottery that included 1 in 440 households across the province, 36 randomly selected participants have been chosen from a pool of 12,500 Ontarians to take part in the Ontario Assembly on Workplace Democracy. This exciting initiative is supported by the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources at the University of Toronto, and seeks to identify barriers to speaking up at work, and generate recommendations to help government bodies and employers improve workers’ capacity to participate in workplace decision-making. 

Want to be part of the conversation? 

Join us on Friday, September 2nd at 11am for a policy debate between labour-law and employment lawyers, Simran Prihar of Goldblatt Partners and Kathryn Marshall of Levitt Sheikh Law, where they’ll advance and defend their best solutions for protecting workers’ voices in the workplace.
