2019 Ontario Employment Law Changes

February 25, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


Learn how the 2019 Ontario Employment Laws changes and more will impact your business.

In the past year the Ontario employment laws have shaken up the workplace and HR practices due to recent sweeping statutory changes. The previous Provincial government enacted a Bill which came into force on January 1, 2018. Then, many of these changes where altered by the current government’s Bill, which took effect January 1, 2019. What has happened now that the dust has settled?

These changes carry significant ripple effects to all organizations operating in Ontario, small and large. Are you incorporating these changes into your workplace? Are you planning ahead effectively? Take this opportunity to learn from an expert the impact these changes will have on your company and help give you a peace of mind.

Some of the topics include:
