Current Issues in Workplace Law- Navigating the Road Ahead

Event Summary
The laws governing workplaces are growing increasingly complex. In this environment, employers need to develop and maintain a basic understanding of these laws, the potential liabilities associated with non-compliance, and how disputes can be resolved or avoided altogether.

With a specific focus on Sault-area workplaces, this breakfast seminar will provide participants with an update on key recent developments in labour, employment, and privacy law.

This interactive session will cover the following topics:

 Bill 148:

  • What is the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act?
  • How can (and should) employers prepare for it?

Medical Marijuana:

  • Is there a duty to accommodate medical marijuana in the workplace? Are there limits to that duty?
  • How can this be done safely?

Drug and Alcohol Testing:

  • Should employers be testing?
  • What types of testing are permitted?
  • What insight does the recent Toronto Transit Commission case provide?

Register for this in-person seminar early as space is limited.
