Operating in Canada in 2014: What You Must Know Now Regarding Employment Laws North of the Border - on CD

 

Employers contemplating operations in Canada and those already operating there need to understand the complexities of Canadian employment laws. Most are very different from those in the United States and carry potential legal liability for the unprepared.

From workers’ compensation to how the provinces and territories view employment equity, U.S. employers who want to hire employees and operate in Canada have a number of requirements starting with pre-employment practices and employment contracts. Because both Canadian federal and provincial governments have jurisdiction over employment, it is important that you know which one regulates your industry and how to abide by their laws.

If you’re already employing in Canada or are preparing to do so, participate in this interactive webinar, and get up to date on the laws and regs so you can avoid ending up in court.

In just 90 minutes, you’ll learn:

  • How to tell if your industry is covered under Canada’s federal or provincial laws -- and which ones
  • Laws governing labor relations, human rights, pay equity, occupational safety and health, workers’ compensation, and privacy in Canada
  • Employment standards that you MUST meet, such as minimum wage, meal and rest periods, holiday pay, and more
  • How to legally terminate non-union employees, since Canada doesn’t recognize at-will employment
  • What recent class-action lawsuits over unpaid overtime and pensions mean for your policies and practices
  • The major ways Canada’s labor relations laws differ from those in the United States
  • What your Canadian anti-harassment policy should state and the jurisdictions in which workplace harassment and violence are expressly prohibited by law
  • How to protect your organization from disability claims
  • Types of universal health insurance, unemployment benefits, and supplemental benefit plans employees are entitled to

In just 90 minutes, you'll learn the dos and don'ts for doing business in Canada.
