This presentation will introduce members of Sarnia-Lambton Economic Partnership (SLEP), outline each of our roles within our community’s taskforce on immigration attraction and settlement, how SLEP can assist HR practitioners with DEI initiatives, and highlight ways SLEP partners with employers to support immigration, settlement, and retention in the area.
Legal counsel Stephane Thiffeault will share information on legal considerations to take into consider when hiring newcomers including human rights considerations, offers of employment and contract language. We hope you will join us for this important session!
