Work Private Lives May No Longer Be Separate

In this article, Micahel Cochrane talks about what happened to Jian Ghomeshi. Jian used to be a CBC Radio Host. He was accused of sexually assaulting people, and was then arrested.

He was able to make a deal with the government to drop the charges since he apologized. He was never found guilty.

“The scandal that continues to engulf fired CBC Radio host Jian Ghomeshi highlights an important trend in employment law related to the increasing blur between professional and private lives, says Toronto lawyer Michael Cochrane.

The impact of off-duty conduct on an individual’s job has become part of the conversation around allegations faced by Ghomeshi, who has been accused of abusive behaviour by women through media reports.”
