The holidays are upon us and it is time to take a well deserved break. Please note that we will not be blogging during the holiday season from Friday December 23, 2016 at noon, to Monday January 2, 2017, inclusive. Our bloggers will resume sharing with you, their expertise and interesting developments in the world of HR, employment law, privacy, accessibility and payroll on Tuesday January 3, 2017.
We also would like to take the time to thank our regular and occasional bloggers for their valuable contributions to the First Reference Talks blog. We could not have done it without them. In addition, thanks to our loyal readership for making this blog a success.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, First Reference Inc. has made a donation to Leaf. Their website, leaf.ca, indicates that they have been working since 1985 for the advancement of the equality of rights of Canadian women and girls.
“LEAF focuses on litigation, law reform and public education, primarily the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, most notably section 15 and 28, to challenge laws, policies and practices that discriminate against women. Our cases have resulted in landmark victories in preventing violence against women, eliminating discrimination in the workplace, allowing access to reproductive freedoms, and providing better maternity benefits, better spousal support and a right to pay equity. Section 15 rights and the Charter in general have been tested, and strengthened, through the advocacy work of LEAF.”
Our regular guest bloggers and the Staff at First Reference wishes everyone a very Happy Holiday Season and all the best for the New Year/Nos blogeures et l’Équipe de La Référence vous souhaite de belles fêtes et une bonne et heureuse année.
See you in 2017!
