SCC Decision: Marine Services International Ltd. v. Ryan Estate

The Supreme Court of Canada’s recent decision in Marine Services International Ltd. v. Ryan Estate, 2013 SCC 44 provides a definitive answer with respect to employee injuries or fatalities in the marine context. This decision is important when it comes to the application of workplace health and safety legislation to compensate for workplace related injuries or death, especially in a maritime context.
