An Employment Law Update

October 26, 2019 Kim WolfCambridge, Guelph, Kitchener/Waterloo 70 Views

Another of the many benefits of being an EMC member – learning about our annual employment law update. 

Magellan Aerospace hosted a spectacular event, and it was a full room.  We welcomed Jennifer Costin, Partner with Siskinds LLP in London.  Jennifer shared some of the most recent legislative changes that have impacted manufacturers, as well as some case studies.  She reviewed:

  • Overtime and the 3 hour rule
  • Top 10 tips for conducting a workplace investigation
  • Alleging cause
  • Providing employment references
  • Audio recordings in the workplace

She also fielded questions from our members, which included some real-life situations that our members are working through.

We were then joined by folks from our EMC partner, Peninsula, who spent some time introducing our members to a tool that they have access to.  Cecilia and Emily spoke about the HR management tool to track legislative changes and manage risk.

We ended the event with a roundtable discussion about general HR topics that our members are currently looking for some benchmarking on, including attendance policies and administration of them.  We welcome YOU to our next event!
