The Ontario Government recently announced that it will be hiring up to 175 new ESA Officers, whose job it will be to audit workplaces across Ontario for compliance with the ESA. The government is also introducing new training and resources for “vulnerable workers”, including part-time, relief, temporary and casual workers, many of whom work in the DS Sector.
In the wake of Bill 148, the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, many employers have a lot of work to do to ensure compliance, prepare for inquiries from workers and demands from unions, and be ready for potential Compliance Audits in the new year.
This topical and timely webinar provides as a step-by-step guide to ESA audit preparedness. Labour and employment lawyers, Cheryl Wiles Pooran and Justin Amaral, will share their insights on how best to achieve compliance, including:
– reviewing new compliance obligations and deadlines;
– how to conduct a self-audit; and
– what to expect when an ESA officer comes knocking.
