Have you heard? Our annual Ontario Employment Law Conference is next week

You’ve probably already heard about the Ontario Employment Law Conference coming up on June 10—that’s next Tuesday!—but have you registered yet?

As always, this year’s conference features Stringer LLP’s employment law experts, including Allison Taylor, Jeffrey Murray, Jeremy Schwartz, Jessica Young, Ryan Conlin and Landon Young, covering the topics you need to know about:

  • Unprecedented OH&S Penalties and Lawsuits
  • Family Status Accommodation
  • Getting Ready for the AODA Employment Standard
  • Using Contracts to Protect Your Business
  • Workplace Alcohol and Drug Testing
  • The Perils of Employee Benefits

The conference includes networking, Q&A sessions, and a new feature: a lunchtime presentation on New Developments in the Occupational Health and Safety Legislation by Sandra Excellent HB.Sc., B.A.Sc., M.Sc., from the Public Services Health & Safety Association.

Our rapid-fire panel discussion is still a feature of the conference, where conference participants can ask questions about recent “hot button” legal developments of interest for employers, such as:

  • How to effectively manage the risks of terminating benefits after employment
  • Recent initiatives and re-emerging liability with respect to employment contracts
  • In what circumstances random screening may be lawful
  • What workers must prove to establish “family status” discrimination in the childcare context
  • What strategies do I need to apply for implementing and enforcing my new AODA policies, practices and procedures

2014 Ontario Employment Law Conference

If that’s not enough, members of the HRPA who attend can receive 6.25 CPD hours. So what are you waiting for? Learn the latest! at the Ontario Employment Law Conference on Tuesday, June 10, 2014.
