Event Sponsor

During this event we will hold our Annual Business Meeting where we will report on the activities and the success of our activities over the year. Our Annual Business Meeting will be followed by a presentation by Lisa Goodfellow from Miller Thomson LLP on Work from Home - Doing it Right: Policies and Legal Considerations for the New Normal.  

With a significant number of employees working from home during Covid, and liking it, many will want to do so post-Covid too. This session will cover legal issues such as WSIB and OHSA coverage, legal compliance, privacy issues, and recommended policies to protect the business and set expectations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn whether and how WSIB applies to WFH
  • Understand your OHSA obligations
  • Designing a WFH policy to address key business issues and HR concerns

During registration, please consider the donation option. Donated funds collected through this event registration will be equally divided between Indspire and Black Youth Helpline, preferred charities identified by HRPA members in a recent survey.
