November spelled the downfall of long-time Conservative politician Tony Clement, and the progression of the incident and its aftermath can serve as a lesson for employers everywhere.

Clement, who has been a key player in Tory party politics for decades — both provincially and federally, had most recently served as the Conservative Party’s justice critic, as well as on a number of key party committees.

While not currently at the forefront, Clement’s profile is recognizable to Canadians as the former federal minister of health under Stephen Harper’s government, and previously as a long-time Ontario MPP. He currently represents the federal district of Parry Sound-Muskoka.
