640 Toronto – OPP Fires Deputy Brad Blair; Starbucks Music Workers’ Rights Issue?

Coffee, Music

Ontario Provincial Police deputy commissioner Brad Blair, who expressed concerns about a friend of the premier’s appointment as the province’s top cop, has been fired. Did the OPP have “just cause” to terminate Blair’s employment? What are Blair’s rights in this situation?

Lior Samfiru is a Toronto Employment Lawyer and partner at Samfiru Tumarkin LLP. He joined host Jeff McArthur on Global News Radio 640 Toronto to discuss Blair’s workplace rights and termination for cause.

Samfiru also discussed workers’ rights where music in the workplace is concerned, following online complaints from unhappy Starbucks employees who no longer want to listen to the soundtrack from the Broadway hit musical Hamilton on repeat in the coffee shop.
