The Basics of HR and OHS Compliance: What Employers Should Know

Did you know it is mandatory for employers to educate staff on their health & safety responsibilities? It is illegal to pay your minimum wage staff less than the set minimum wage. You also cannot punish a worker for exercising their rights under the law, such as refusing unsafe work.

In this webinar, our HR and health & safety expert Brian Mabee discusses the foundational blocks of HR and OHS compliance to help employers understand the nitty-gritty of key legislation related to employment in Canada.

Understanding the nitty-gritty of employment and health & safety law – especially if you operate across provinces – can be difficult. But it is critical to know.

Non-compliance with laws can expose your business to fines, penalties, legal claims, and even closure.
