The Ontario Employment Standards Act is a labyrinth of intricate rules, employer obligations and employee entitlements that even the most sophisticated lawyers sometimes misinterpret. Yet, all companies governed by the Act are required to comply with its provisions, big or small.
It is therefore imperative that human resources professionals and other managers understand what actions (and inactions) are required by the Act.
This program is designed to present a broad overview of the most commonly misunderstood sections of the Act, in particular the more important and esoteric areas. The objective is to give a rough guideline for compliance, which may be buffered by day-to-day legal advice.
- Termination and severance obligations
- Leaves of absence
- Vacation and holiday pay
- Hours of Work and Overtime
- Enforcement and Damages
Who should attend?
Human Resource professionals, managers, operations personnel, executives.
