Canada Comes To the Criminalization of Employment Law Party

Maybe they have been there before on other issues, but now they join the United States in the post Sarbanes era making it a criminal offense to take adverse action against whistleblowers. Michael Fitzgibbon at Thoughts of A Management Employer, the Canadian employment law blog, has the story and a link to what he calls a great legislative summary. And although I am not sure of the exact meaning, but you should know that this is an offence punishable on "summary conviction." Sounds pretty scary to me.
