17th annual Ontario employment law conference early bird registration #learnthelatest

ontario emplaw conference #learnthelatestRegistration is now open for the 17th Annual Ontario Employment Law Conference, presented by First Reference and Stringer LLP on Thursday June 2, 2016, at the Corporate Event Centre at CHSI in Mississauga.

We’re busy finalizing the topics for this year’s conference and we’ll let you know as soon as the agenda is ready. You can be sure that we’ll cover all the most pressing issues you need to understand your obligations in today’s constantly evolving compliance environment. Topics include:

  • Upcoming WSIB Experience Rating reform
  • Bill 132 and the new sexual violence and harassment rules for employers
  • New developments on the topics of constructive dismissal and suspensions
  • The continually evolving law of privacy
  • Employment Standards updates
  • Family status accommodation

Last year’s attendees appreciated the breakout sessions, where they got the opportunity to discuss specific issues in greater detail with Stringer’s employment law experts. We’ll be bringing this feature back this year and topics covered will be:

  • Accommodation of employee disabilities
  • Terminations of employment
  • Responding to workplace accidents

In addition, this year, we are honoured to have the Human Rights Commissioner Renu Mandhane as our lunchtime speaker.
