Original Broadcast Date:
Tuesday, March 3, 2020
You will learn practical tips related to three topics that administrative decision-makers increasingly face:
- Social media: Learn how to avoid social media pitfalls in the context of administrative proceedings.
- Self-represented parties in administrative proceedings: It is increasingly common for parties to appear before administrative bodies without legal counsel. Learn practical tips to manage these situations fairly and consistently.
- Special accommodations: In some instances, parties to a proceeding request special accommodations based on one of the protected grounds in human rights legislation. How far must an administrative decision-maker go to accommodate such requests? Learn about the latest guidance from the Courts on this important topic.
This is an intermediate-level webinar that is best suited for tribunal members who have some experience in their role as an administrative decision-maker. For beginners or those in need of a refresher, we suggest earlier webinars in this series, particularly So You’ve Just Been Appointed to a Hearing Tribunal… prior to participating in this webinar.
