Federally regulated employers have had to adapt to a number of legal changes and challenges in recent years. In addition to continuing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2021, federally regulated employers have had to implement workplace changes to adhere to the new Work Place Harassment and Violence Prevention Regulations and begin preparing to meet their obligations under recently adopted Pay Equity Act.

Our role as counsel is not just to help you understand your obligations under federal employment standards and pay equity legislation, but to provide you with practical guidance on how to prepare for upcoming challenges and respond efficiently when those challenges do arise.

Join us on Tuesday, November 2, 2021 for a virtual workshop on how to address some of the unique challenges faced by federally regulated employers, including:

  • What To Expect from the Federal Government When Parliament Returns
  • Preventing Work Place Harassment and Violence: Lessons Learned in Year 1 of the New Scheme
  • Preparing to Meet Your Obligations Under the Pay Equity Act: What Steps Can You Take in the Coming Months
  • Where Do Claims Go and What Does That Mean: A Practical Guide to Dispute Resolution

Those in attendance will be encouraged to participate and seek out speakers’ views on points of interest. We hope to see you there!
