The Employment Standards Act sets the rules for employment practices in your office and in the field. Your current work rules may fall short of your statutory obligations even though they are well accepted by your staff. You usually find out you are not in compliance too late and are faced with months of back pay owed.
This two-hour online seminar will give you a review of Employment Standards Act requirements that are particularly relevant to construction industry employers, including:
- Employment contracts
- Who is a "manager"
- Hours of work and overtime
- Averaging agreements for hours of work
- Termination of employment
- Vacation and statutory holidays
- Independent contractors vs. employees
- Impact of the common law
