Description

TDS lawyer Meghan Ross will be instructing the Winnipeg Construction Association course “When the Regulator Comes Calling: Managing Inspections and Investigations” on Tuesday, May 21, 2024.

This session will examine the scope of a regulator’s authority to inspect or investigate individuals and work sites in pursuit of a prosecution under a regulatory statute (for example: occupational health and safety, environmental or taxation). We will explore the legal consequences of an investigation (where the regulator is trying to gather evidence in support of a prosecution) and an inspection (where a regulator is seeking to monitor general compliance) across a number of common regulatory contexts, along with how best to manage the process. A big part of avoiding charges and successfully defending prosecutions involves having a plan and knowing how to respond to regulators when they conduct their inspections and investigations.
